The scanned images are named in the following way:
<year><event type><quarter>-<range>-<page> . <file type>
For example, Deaths 1875 March quarter, first surname WALTER, page 415 saved as a GIF file would be 1875D1-W-0415.gif
On FreeBMD, the scanned files are stored in a directory structure that mirrors the filenames, like so:
<year>/<long event type>/<long quarter>/<reference> [ /<letter range> ] /<year><event type><quarter>- [ <subsection range>- ] <page>
where the definitions are as above, plus:
So, our example would be, in full: 1875/Deaths/March/GRO-D2530/P-Z/1875D1-W-0415.gif, and the reference number to be included in submissions would be GRO-D2530.
