Did They Just Dump in A Few Letters?

Recently while searching through a handwritten index to probate records, I noticed that the clerk "stuck" approximately 10 entries for last names beginning with the letter "S" in with those last names beginning with the letter "R."

When you run out of room, you run out of room.

Sometimes these entries will be mentioned at the end of the section that needed more space. But there's always that change.

  1. Makes it a little hard to find though!

  2. It's a big problem! Sometimes there is no mention that the "B" (or whatever) is continued on the "U" (or whatever)pages . Makes for very hard searching.
