Cavan county birth, marriage, death records
I just downloaded a Cavan county Ireland batch. I am not new to indexing but haven’t done anything like this project. I read the what to index and then looked at the samples but the batch I got looks different from the examples. i would really like to learn to do these as my husband has ancestors from CAVAN COUNTY, IRELAND.
Does anyone have experience that can help me get started.. Thank you..

Irish records have changed little over time - the forms from 1864 look very much the same as the forms from 1964.
Can you give us a hint as to what the issue is? Are these birth, marriages, or deaths?
And FYI - most of those have been indexed several times, so you should be able to see the same records online at https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/civil-search.jsp
Edit to add - I just checked the available projects for Ireland, and there are none listed, for me, from Cavan. There are church records for Antrim, Armagh, Down, and Fermanagh. Those are baptisms and church marriages, not civil birth/marriage/death.0
If you provide the batch number people can look and help - it's the code in the square brackets at the end of the title of the batch. eg Ireland, Cavan—Church Records, 1740–1913 [Part A] [M3Z5-RC2]
Alternatively you can open the batch and just copy and paste the URL of the batch into your question/comment eg https://www.familysearch.org/indexing/batch/a0be0317-42c2-4294-9c99-f44a408f0b335
I was able to download a batch from Cavan - as Ontymay apparently did as well. I got a page with Baptisms and a page upside down with Marriages - lucky me. :) You can rotate the pages with the Tools icon
- so not a problem.
@Pat Vause1 Yes, if you put the batch number here we could probably help you with an example line or two...0
A note. It is not an acceptable practice to go to other sites to see how they indexed a record. FamilySearch has a contract with the owners of the document for our indexers to index the record not to get the information from other sites.
It is great that you are indexing these records! Thank you for wanting to do a good job indexing them.3
