Looking At Page Numbers

Microfilmers and digitizers are human. When "reading" books or other printed material online or on microfilm, I always look at the page numbers to make certain they are sequential. I discovered a certain website that missed one image out of a thousand page book--of course it was the page I needed. When reading from one image to the next, it did not make sense.

Sure enough a gander at the pages indicated one was missing.

It happens.

  1. I found the very same thing at ancestry.com. And yes, it was the census page I needed. Still don't have it.
