    Best practices for transcribing Purple Heart Decoration records?

    Wayfarer

      I have been transcribing the Purple Heart Decoration records. It would be extremely helpful to have a sheet with best practices/guidance for these records. I have noticed that some transcribers add line spaces, others don't. Some transcribers type the Headers from the card: NAME, NUMBER, etc.  Others do not; they just type the information given. What is correct, or does it matter?

      I want to transcribe correctly as I am devoting much time to this project and would appreciate some feedback. It would seem fitting that all records would be transcribed the same way and in an efficient manner.

      Any helpful information is appreciated.
