Do You Know the Order?

When using records that are not indexed, make certain you know the order in which they were recorded or the order in which they were filed. Was it by date of the item? Was it by date the item was recorded? Was it by license, document, or casefile number? Was it by the date the case was started? Was it by date the case was settled?

Or was it simply some random, arbitrary order?

Order matters.
