Rescan image request
I sent a message request to https://www.familysearch.org/blog/en/familysearch-microfilm-collection-digitized/comment-page-6/?unapproved=1723777&moderation-hash=fa8219d0b67c3b12c336ca7688dc8012#comment-1723777 and they advised that I send a question in this location. Can I escalate this to the right team?
The problem is that the scan includes about 3 documents that are stacked on top of each other.
Can someone verify that there is a scan of each of the documents individually? Or can someone remove this scan and rescan each of the documents?
We can't - obviously - flip pages forward since that index batch is only 2 pages. BUT normally, pages like that are photographed or filmed multiple times - 1x for the top image, then again for the 2nd image down, and then, finally, for the last image in the stack.
If you look at the same data set on Ancestry, which was filmed in black and white, that's exactly how Abraham Burshten's record was filmed. There are 3 successive images, as the photographer filmed in sucession. https://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&dbid=61203&h=30143&tid=&pid=&queryId=93da8cddeaecd1db27c65f8a46b30d88&usePUB=true&_phsrc=blK246&_phstart=successSource1
This image is what is known as an over lay. In the Project instructions for this batch if you go down to the General Indexing guidelines and look for Overlay you will find this information:
You Just index what you can see for Abraham on that first overlay. Someone will get the next batch where that first overlay page will be turned and the underlying documents will be indexed by someone else. As @Áine Ni Donnghaile mentioned above the image is photographed multiple times to capture all of the documents.
Your question will be forwarded to a indexing category for review and assistance.
Hopefully this will help you understand about overlays.
Thank you for helping Index. That helps so many find records about their ancestors.0
