It seems that the "reconnu" records on the left side of the "Naissance" records are the same information as the birth record. I should be indexing it as a "reconnaisance" record? Correct?
Can you give us the share batch number so that we can look at this batch and the respective project instructions and help field information? Then we can give you the answer you need. The Batch number is at the end of the project name within the brackets. For example: Liberia—2008 Census [Part M][M38K-1FL] M38K-1FL is the batch number.
We will watch for that batch number for your project and respond back to your question.
Thank you so much for helping us Index. That helps so many have access to records for their ancestors.
Thank you! I look forward to your answering my questions.
This is the batch number: MS79-B38
In this batch all of these should be indexed as the entry type Naissance. Please refer to the samples 1 and 2 of the project instructions What to index. There is a sample for Comment Indexer un Acte de Reconnaissance (How to Index an Act of Recognition) and the second sample is Comment Indexer un Acte de Naissance (How to Index an Act of Birth) All of the images in this batch is the later sample. The given and surname and birth date information is on the left side of the image at the top. When I looked at batch it appears that you are doing it correctly.
Thank you for your help! So to make sure I understand correctly—
When I find a birth record with many other noted records on the left side, such as the reconnaissance record, marriage, marriage of the parents, death record, I am only to index the birth record?
No other left side noted records should be indexed? Is that correct?
Could you please tell me if all of the left side records in the French Polynesian records should not be indexed? I have a question above that I would like answered please.
