Page 39 - Act of 1752, it is suggested that the form of entry may be simplified by the omission of formal phrases, but care should be taken not to omit any record of fact, however apparently unimportant, such for instance as the names of witnesses, ministers, occupation, etc. It is essential in all cases that an Index should be given and that the Christian names should be given with the surnames.

It must, however, be borne in mind that the same name may be continually spelt in different ways, and may undergo considerable changes in the course of time or from the hands of different scribes. In copying dates, it must be remembered that down to 1752, the year began on the 25th of March and not on the 1st of January. METHOD OF TRANSCRIPTION.
Page 38 - OF WRITING. In transcribing, great care must be used to avoid mistakes from the confusion of certain letters with modern letters of similar form.
