Hello, I'm fairly new to indexing but I enjoy it. I have a batch that I will probably return because I cannot figure out what the information is on the page.
It is a notebook sized page not a large book. The information on the batch is UK, Scotland, Lanarkshire, Church records 1823-1967. Across the top of the page is just a written year 1839, then underneath five columns with no headings. A date number, month, male name, address (sometimes just a town name or a street with number, it's a narrow column) and lastly a name (about 3 have a second name, the other 41 do not.) I was excited to see this batch as I was born in Glasgow so many of the street names and towns are familiar to me, but they are also not close in proximity. Some addresses are in the city center or to the east side or south side but cover a large area. I cannot see especially in 1839 people travelling such a distance and having to pass by 100's of churches to get to one in particular. The dates are mostly on a Sunday, some dates have just one named entry on the day, others two or three but no more than five. it looks to me as though someone in the church was keeping a log about something. The last column has male and female names so it cannot be marriages. Does anyone have any suggestions or just return the batch? Thank you in advance.
Hi, if you share the batch code, which is the group of letters and numbers at the end of the batch title, then others can look at the image and give you a better answer. just copy that group of letters and numbers and paste it here with your question.1
Hi Susan. If you could share the number of the batch you're working on we would be able to see what you're working on and give you the advice and help you need. You will find the batch number at the top of the batch page ending in [Mxxx-Hxx]. You can copy and paste that number in your reply.
Thank you for indexing.1
