ADM Abbreviation[edit source]

In front of some of the death registration numbers, there is an abbreviation ADM.  Does anyone know what that means? — Preceding unsigned comment added by StarkeyPD (talk | contribs) 02:40, 11 June 2012 

It might stand for Administration, but Collection Ops is double-checking. HoranDM 23:46, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

Looks like the Death Registers are coded D.R. followed by the volume number/page number.  Those that are labeled ADM (which probably stands for Administration) appear to be separate from the death registers and contain Wills and Living Trust records.  This conclusion was a result of perusing the Death Register Indexes and reading the film notes associated with these records in the Family History Catalog.
