Not Suffix and Don't guess

I hope the new keyer who has made these errors will see this message for some helpful feedback. Please see attached screen shot. There are two significant errors in addition to others in this image set.

1. The suffix field is not for the person's middle name or initial. The entire first and middle name(s) should be keyed into the GIVEN name field. There is a reason you had to F7 the field! When this is corrected, it results in two marked errors per line.

2. The city and county keyed on the header may NOT be presumed from prior images or assumed from the address of the individual. Ottawa nor Franklin appear at the top of the image, therefore the fields in the header record should be left blank.

Use these message boards to help you "see" the fields you've marked "illegible". Try the image manipulation tool to lighten or darken the image. Posting screen shots here of images that you find hard, will generate suggestions and help you interpret the handwriting.

Hope that helps you and others!

Bob
P.S. Attached screen shot after review. Corrections shown in purple.
