This project is South Africa, Western Cape—Deceased Estate Files, 1974–2011. It won't be unusual to find records written in Afrikaans.
There is an example of your image that is in Afrikaans. It is titled How To Index A Death Notice - Afrikaans 2.
If you don't want to index Image 2 using that example to learn the language, then you should return the batch so someone else can index it. Under the What To Remember Section of the Project Instructions:
- Records in this project are primarily in English or Afrikaans. If you download a batch that is in a language you are uncomfortable indexing, simply return it for someone else to index, and download a new project. Do not mark images in different languages as "No, No Extractable Data."
To Return a Batch, click on Batch and Return Batch. Or on your main page, click on the Manage Tab and you can return it from your queue.
There is also an Afrikaans Genealogical Word List link in the Project Instructions which might be helpful. They give a lot of information about names, months, years, numbers, etc. PI's can be pulled up at anytime by clicking on the link at the bottom of the entry form, the last icon on the toolbar, or Help and the PI tab.3
When you need help with a batch, you can share it with another indexer. This person can
then see details of the batch and give you the help you need, but any information the helper
enters into the data entry area will not be saved.
The batch link appears at the end of the name of each batch in brackets, e.g. [L9L-1L1]
1. Just above the toolbar, click Help.
2. On the drop-down menu, click Share Batch.
3. The Share Batch window opens, giving you two options:
- Copy the batch link, (paste it in a new comment window or edit your original comment by clicking on the 3 dots in the upper right corner, select Edit, and remember to click Save Comment). The helper can click the link and go directly to the batch.
- Share the batch code so the helper can enter it in the web indexing tool and open the batch.
A second way to find the batch code is by clicking Batch, then About Batch. The Batch
ID is the same as the code.0
Please share your batch with us and we will try to help. Copy the batch code, which is the group of letters and numbers at the end of your batch title, and paste it here with your question and we will try our best to help.1
M3JG-LFW is the code. maybe you could add a translating tool in the indexing0
