Places - Some images may have include names for both a ploughland or a townland and a sub-denomination. Index both of them in the Townland field.
Names - Index all names of individuals found on your image. Names may be located in columns for Townlands, in columns for occupiers and proprietors, in the heading of the document, or even written along the side of the document. Please check the image thoroughly to find all names.
Index any names in the heading of the document, and then index the names vertically down each column on the image, starting at the left column and working to the right.
Some entry lines will have ditto marks or other signs of repetition. It is only necessary to index each complete name one time for each image. Do not assume a name for an individual when the document says, "and son." If an individual is not named on the document, do not add a record for him or her.
