Can You Find the Typographical Error and Getting the Date

This image comes from page 216 of Probate Journal 44 from Hancock County, Illinois' Circuit Clerk's Office and was obtained on FamilySearch.

There is a typographical error in this document.


This probate journal is from the December 1917 term of the County Court--18 December 1917. This date is not on the image and the page itself does not make it clear what date this order was made. I had to view a few pages before this one in order to find the precise date of the order. When making digital copies make certain that all relevent information is obtained.

The typographical error is fairly easy to catch. Any transcription of this item should not make any corrections. The Latin sic, in backets, can be used to indicate the error and a comment can be added if deemed necessary.
