U.S., Military Registers, Marines-Military Date Question

U.S., Military Registers, Marines-Military Date Question

On one image I have, there is one full page and and second page creeping in. There is one date on the first page and a more recent one on the second. I know the rules say to pick the later date, but since this date is from the page that is the second image but also is part of the first image, does it apply here?

Each image is to be treated as a separate piece of the project. We don't transfer information from page to page. It states in the wiki to key the information from the first page with the names and whatever information present. The second image would then be marked as a Cover page.

But surely it's not as simple as that in this case, because some of the dates on the second page are showing on the first image?

When I started keying, that's what had been told to me and I don't believe it has changed. Unless otherwise stated in the wikis, it's usually one page per image. No carrying information from one page to the other.

When in doubt, email WAP or Anna and ask them for a definite decision.

Ok, thank you all. :) This is an odd case, so I just wanted to make sure. :)
