Microfilm page number

1850: Both samples
1860: All three samples

All persons.

PAGENO gives the microfilm page number from which the case was entered. These are the page numbers stamped on the forms before microfilming. PAGENO can be used in conjunction with REEL, PAGESEQ, and LINE to locate and view the case as it appeared on the original 1850 and 1860 slave schedules. In cases where page numbers were stamped on every second page, line numbers 1-80 indicate the case appeared on the first page, and lines 81-160 indicated the case appeared on the second page (see LINE).
