If you have ever been curious about how police departments communicate, how perpetrators are described, or what a lot of stolen horses look like this is the project for you as it is full of interesting stories. As with all projects the Police Gazettes can be challenging but if you read the help article, and follow the Field Helps you should be just fine.
We are keying every name you encounter in this project so you will need to learn to identify what the names are. For example if the article talks about “Messrs Smith and Jones” you would key Mr in the prefix and Smith in the Surname field for the first record, followed by the next record being keyed the same except for putting Jones in the Surname field. So you just need to be careful not to overlook the names in the articles. * Names should be keyed in the order they appear.*
