U.S., Military Registers, Army (Part 1) - Common Errors

U.S., Military Registers, Army (Part 1) - Common Errors

An FYI for keyers of this project:

After having reviewed nearly 2500 records from this project, the most common error I'm finding is a failure of the keyer to use the most recent date from a list of multiple Military Dates. This is especially true on the images that have a Date of Rank included with the person's name. In many cases, the DOR is not the most recent date, but is the date most frequently keyed. The individual may have been transferred, reassigned, or discharged, creating multiple dates more recent than the DOR.

From the project instructions... "Military dates include, but are not limited to, enlistment dates, service dates, dates of rank, and retirement dates. When multiple dates appear for an individual key from the latest date."

Can you please clear up some of my confusion by telling me what the military date would be on the attached record? Thank you.

Is there any way to go back and correct the data I entered on an image set after I have submitted it?

No, once you have submitted a set, you can't retrieve it. A reviewer will be able to correct errors.

Is the attached a "Cover Page, Section Header, ect." or should the names be keyed into a "Military Register"?

Those are names that should be keyed. Also - if there is no date next to a name, but there is a date at the top of the page, key that date as the Military Date.
