Gaol; a new word for me

Even though it may not have made sense when I first saw the title of our new project I thought it was a typo.  Those of you more informed will know that we have a new jail related project.

The England, Somerset, Gaol Registers, 1807-1879 project contains records of inmates.  There are a variety of record types but all records with names to be keyed will be Record form types.  Because there are some images only showing page 1 there is a Page 2 form type for when the Discharge information is not on the same image – for this reason we have a Line Number field so we can attach the dates to the appropriate person from the preceding image.  There are quite a few image samples to review that will help locate the information being keyed from the records.


Happy indexing!
