Daily location spilt over two pages
« on: November 15, 2014, 04:08:20 pm »
Wasn't sure how handle this, so thought I'd ask for other people's opinions

The daily location report from the top of the page for the Yorktown from the 9/02/1891 has been split up over the two pages (see links below) so I wanted to ask, is it ok to include the "Orleans La" from the second page in the location from the first page? or should I just write what is written on the weather report page?

It is definitely a gray area.
In this case, no latitudes and longitudes are given so we really need position information, I would say to go ahead and transcribe the whole description on one page. Also, as justification, the log keeper has added a hyphen to indicate the continuation ;)

In cases like this you might find Matteo's Image Coupler handy: Page joining tool - for when the text you are trying to read is split over two pages
