Why do some of the Get Involved activities look different than traditional indexing?
The Get Involved experience includes many different kinds of activities, including indexing. New technologies have been incorporate, including computers indexing the records first. Then, the names and other information are looked at by human reviewers and corrected, if needed.
On the Get Involved web page or app, you can quickly review names (or other identified information) from computer-indexed records by indicating if the indexed name is correct or correcting it.
You can choose record collections to review that you are interested in. In the forthcoming 1950 U.S. census that will be computer-indexed and available to review using the Get Involved app, you will get to choose households in a chosen location that you want to review.
