SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS

Births June 1849

A special case applies regarding the four added digits that complete the September 1843 Births transcription filenames.

Where the letters in the centre of the scan read "A"and 'B", no special action is required. Use the group of four numbers at the end of the scan filename without adjustment.

Where the letters in the centre of the scan name read "C"and "D", the first number of the group of four should be increased by 1 thus "0111" would become "1111".

Where the letters in the centre of the scan name read "E"to"G", the first number of the group of four should be increased by 2 thus "0111" would become "2111".

Where the letters in the centre of the scan name read "H", the first number of the group of four should be increased by 3 thus "0111" would become "3111".

Where the letters in the centre of the scan name read "I" to "L", the first number of the group of four should be increased by 4 thus "0111" would become "4111".

Where the letters in the centre of the scan name read "M" to "O", the first number of the group of four should be increased by 5 thus "0111" would become "5111".

Where the letters in the centre of the scan name read "P"to "R", the first number of the group of four should be increased by 6 thus "0111" would become "6111".

Where the letters in the centre of the scan name read "S", the first number of the group of four should be increased by 7 thus "0111" would become "7111".

Where the letters in the centre of the scan name read "T" to "V", the first number of the group of four should be increased by 8 thus "0111" would become "8111".

Where the letters in the centre of the scan name read "W" to "ZUnknown", the first number of the group of four should be increased by 9 thus "0111" would become "9111".

This is necessary because there is insufficient space within the file name to differentiate between the various groups of scans within the overall batch.
