I've been helping a cousin with his ancestry today and an image I pulled up for
Sonoma County, California was in single-page format. Yet one I have saved for my
own files for McLeod County, Minnesota is the double-page type. Perhaps the
different filming teams that did different states (and/or counties) followed
different sets of rules or interpreted them differently?
