I'm confused about keying grant, warrant, and certificate numbers on these records. I'm keying warrant numbers, where they exist, but mostly I'm seeing certificate numbers. Those I am not keying, because sometimes they are based on warrants (for which I have numbers). Should I be keying certificate numbers, too?

Thanks.

Could you post a screen shot of one you are not sure of?

Or if you have Windows Vista or 7, use the "Snipping Tool" (accessed from the Start button).

I hope this is it. The confusing thing may not have come through completely -- seems to me there were two sets of numbers.

I know these can be terribly confusing when you see three different numbers. I would key 13598 from the Keying Image Samples given on the project wiki:

Also, a possible little tip, I cannot actually see the image compared to what I can see you have keyed, but I would double check the entry for John Pates - especially if he was one of the adjacent land owners. Lots of times the description says something like " Hickory pointers on John Pates corner". In an example like this, you would key "John Pate" - his surname was plural in the description and not his actual surname.
