Reviewing: Skipped entire entry?
I'm reviewing a New Zealand electoral Roll. There are 2 David Young's on the list and the indexer skipped the second David Young and continued on to the other entries. What do I do?
- The instructions say:
- The completed index and links to digital images will be freely accessible online to the general public when the collection is published. Not every field that is available on the image will be included in the project. The index is provided to direct patrons to the image, where they can view all additional information on the image as part of their genealogical research.
As there would be no difference between the two entries, the indexer was correct in skipping the second entry.
Hope this helps0
It helps when you provide the Shared Batch code when asking a question. That allows us to see exactly what you are wondering. It is easy to have miscommunication!
Many of these projects instruct us to index each unique name. If that is the instruction for your batch then that would be why the indexer skipped the identical names. As LarryClark43 has stated.1
The system will also remove the duplicate entry on submission. So, even if the indexer entered David Young twice, or if you as a reviewer try to add a record for David Young, the duplicate will be deleted.1
