Include country/US state from batch title in indexing
The following was posted on Community Help-Indexing:
"South Africa, Johannesburg, Cemetery Records, 1840-2019", database, FamilySearch(https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:6XCN-W4TS : 8 March 2022), Johannes G Steyn,
This is an example of 3,133 records (according to each) that have the burial place standardized to California.
Is there a way that FamilySearch can fix these so the are searchable in South Africa rather can California?
Project examples usually don't show including anything not written/typed on a form. However, additional location information might be printed on the form and the country/US state is usually part of the project name. If it was standardized that this could be indexed as well, it would prevent mislocations like this from happening. In this case, just by adding South Africa after any town listed for death or the cemetery (especially if it was Johannesburg as it was in this example), would default to South Africa instead of Johannesburg, Kern, California, United States.
I'm sure this happens in many other individual records, but this was a whole project!
