Dates are formatted numerically, "year, month, day" and in cases where no month and day were listed, they sometimes used a zero (0) as a place marker.
The only changes I have made to the original database was the very occasional abbreviation of a middle name due to space constraints, and the abbreviation of the word "TOMBSTONE" to TS. There are some terms such as "head" and "foot" used by Rose Hill which are NOT parts of the anatomy, but determine if the burial is at the "head or foot" of a particular space. Most of these relate to the burial of infants who may be sharing a space with an adult burial.
