Hi. Is the place where the person registering lives, the place of registration please ?
For questions about an indexing batch, please give us your share batch or code so someone in the group can better help you.
Hmm we wont know for sure unless we are able to see exactly what you are talking about. If you share the batch with us we can double check for you🙂
Hi Thank you for getting back to me. This is what the page looks like. I always leave the place and reg number blank on these, as l thought this was just the place of birth written on the top. I noticed some people put the place as Sierra Leone, and the reg number as what is written, by hand, in the first column.
Hope this makes sense
Registration Field Help Instructions:
Type the locality.
You should expand abbreviations or correct misspellings when you can tell what the abbreviation stands for or what the correction should be to the spelling.
Separate geographical levels of locality, from smallest to largest, with a comma.
Do not index the registration center.
Index only the town or village, chiefdom, and district, in that order.
If the locality was not recorded or was written as a variation of the word "unknown," press Ctrl+B to mark this field blank.
If you look at the Project Instructions, "How to Index a Birth Register, Example 2", you will see the Registration Place marked as #1. Notice this is handwritten (it may also be typed). In your shared batch, image 1, the Registration Place would be "Port-Loko." Any location that is printed as part of the form text (e.g., Sierra Leone), is usually not included in a place location, so should not be entered, unless it is written/typed in as part of the locality.
Thank you. I did look at the instructions but when l saw some people putting "Sierra Leone "in l was a bit baffled
