The Flip Side and Those Numbers
This is the "cover sheet" from an 1830 marriage bond from Nicholas County, Kentucky. In the next issue of Casefile Clues, I've transcribed the numbers even though they are upside down, I'm not certain what they are for, and the calculation appears to be incorrect.
A bigger frustration I have with microfilmed or digital images is the occasional difficulty one has in determining which front and back go together. In the examples discussed in issue 3-37, that's not a problem, but sometimes it is.
