Organizing Fields for Mount Pleasant Cemetery

I know that some of you have discovered the “organize fields” feature, but for those that haven’t, here’s a pleasant surprise that will make your indexing much easier.


When you have the indexing page open, you’ll see a “View” menu at the top left. Choose “Organize fields” and you can easily hide the fields you don’t need for Mount Pleasant, and drag the others into the correct order using the arrows between the columns. Just highlight the field name on the left, and use the second arrow button to move it to the box on the right, or use the third and fourth buttons to shuffle it up or down.

Here’s a screen shot of what the “Organize fields” should look like for Mount Pleasant. Please note that I’ve hidden “Age: Weeks” because the Mount Pleasant records don’t use weeks.

NOTE: Later records for Mount Pleasant Cemetery do use the “Nearest Relation” columns. Be sure to re-organise the fields to capture that information when it is present.
