Facing page which is part of the record not shown..
Picked up this batch for indexing that someone else has started.
It is obvious that each baptism record starts on the left hand side of the page and then continues on the right hand side which has been cut off. (Can just see the start of the names of parents etc.,
What is the correct way of dealing with this please so someone picks this up and resolves- Thanks
You should be able to use the reference images to index the parent names and other information that might be on that right side of the page.
To open the reference images, click on the bottom icon on the vertical toolbar. You will be using reference image +1
The full instructions for this are in the General Indexing Guidelines under the link:
What to Do When Records Span 2 Images or to View Additional Images.
It is also preferable to index using Upper and Lower case letters, not all caps.
1st entry is David Morris. 4th entry is Phoebe Watt. I think the 5th might be Richard Zenthim
Since there is no County on the record, (unless it is written on the reference image) the field would be blank.1
Not able to look at your batch. Could you please share the batch code in brackets after the name of the project? Thank you!0
UK, England, Lancashire—Nonconformist Church Records, 1647–1996 [Part B][MSGK-ZNQ]
Hope this helps never exactly sure what you need to have to view the batch
Thank you for the batch code--MSGK-ZNQ is the code and what we need to bring up your batch.
And EEK! You're right: Both pages should have been photographed but wasn't.
From the project instructions (If a record does not include a name for the primary person, you should still index the record, marking the primary name fields blank and indexing other names...), you would mark the parents' names blank just as you had done.
Apparently someone one day will get the other page and have to mark the child's names as blank.
Thanks for sharing!0
I noticed the errors (and the capitals) from the previous person who had evidently started this batch and abandoned it.
I will correct these, thank you for your assistance and the very helpful tip of the +1 image.1
Melissa, wouldn't that page be considered another batch? That's what happens with a project I'm working on where a partial page is shown but we're told NOT to index it, just the full image.0
It is a record that spans two images. The right side of the form's image is in the next batch. The person who gets that partial image (Reference Image +1) should mark it No, No Extractable Data.
Share a batch from the project you are working on. It sounds the same; you wouldn't index a partial page since it would be indexed with the primary name's records.0
Here's one batch with kind of a partial image at the top: M3CW-444
The images have been getting better (one page per batch), but some have had a partial page that was readable and people indexed names from that partial.0
I have been working on that project too. This is a different situation than David had on his batch. The next image was the second half of the record he was working on and showed the primary's parents names in the next "batch".
Your batch shows a blurry photo of a single page with 8 baptism records. You would not index the top part of the image since it is shown in totality on the previous image (Reference Image -1) beginning with Edith Florence and ending with Margaret. So, they are not records that span two images.
The thing that drives me most crazy with this project is that people are indexing the child's surname on the baptisms when they should be blank. I see your review batch has the same ongoing error! But, I do like indexing and reviewing this project with the beautiful cursive.0
Yup, I thought about that after I sent the batch code. Oh well. Thanks, Melissa!🤙0
