Hello,
I have a crew list with birth years written as /44 or /55 etc.
Do I write 44 or 1844 in birth year column?
Thanks,
Margaret

We are to key the birth year as four digits, so you would enter 1844.

I'm so glad you recognise them as birth years. Some keyers enter them as ages. Do you think the keyers wonder why sometimes a ship appears to have a whole crew of pensioners?

That makes me smile sometimes, too. I know people had to be tough in those days, but almost a whole crew in their 60s or 70s?
