Philippines, Camarines Sur, Caceres—Registros Parroquiales, 1716–1977 [Parte B] [MMZF-PHY]
10 marriage records on the page. Indexer put 60 baptism records in the file, mostly with the same bogus data in them.
Such pointless time wasting, makes you mad doesn't it?
- you can report that via the "Reasons to reindex Batch" function
- First open the batch - then click on Help then Labs and tick the box so that "Reasons to Reindex Batch" is active
- Then reload the batch (this activates the reindexing function
- Then send the batch for reindexing by clicking on Batch then Reindex (not return batch) and you have the options for why it needs to be reindexed
- select "User is abusive or malicious (check all that apply)" and then User entered junk data
- and finally return batch for reindexing
You will need to enable the function periodically as it "falls off" every so often3
I NEVER return a batch for reindexing. As reviewers, we are encouraged to index a batch every now and then. That, plus the fact that I'm a better indexer than 99% of those out there, and I want to make sure it's done right the second time.1
The thing is, Jerry, if this is a malicious indexer, which it certainly appears to be from reading your post, (I can't view the image) - then there are three ways to stop them:
1) Return the batch for reindexing using the form that Ontymay pointed to.
or Hold on to the Batch and:
2) Call FamilySearch directly at the Contact Us number that is specific to where you are located and advise them of the issue.
3) Wait and see if a moderator answers this post and says they will notify familysearch that this has occurred.
When you correct the batch without doing one of three things, the person who is entering bogus data or needs extra help is never found.3
i once had a batch of an enlistment rolls and like 37 out of 40 entries were just filled with <BLANK> even though there were names on the record to index. Cant say these two incidents are connected, but its up to us to be the better people. I feel a little grateful if i come across one like these even though they are a pain to correct. Why, because i know im going to take care of it, and im glad to see you guys care about this stuff too!2
But it is also up to us to make sure that malicious indexers are stopped. This happened more often when there were indexing competitions and people wanted to inflate their numbers. That doesn't happen as often now. But, once in a while, there is a problem. Also, there can be a problem with folks using third party keyboards. They don't even know that the information they are indexing is being saved wrong. They see the correct letters on the screen. So, it is helpful to everyone to report these problems.1
You wouldn't, possibly, be from the Waianae side of Oahu, would you?0
