I was reading an Alaskan 1950 census record that was so faint that not one name was readable. The whole district appeared to be this way. Are the images going to be rescanned?
Is there a way to report that it needs to be rescanned?
@Sue Sheldon, try reposting your question as Can this 1950 Image be rescanned? or give us a snippet of the image so we can see what you're talking about?
My understanding is that the US National Archives (NARA) did all the scanning before the 1 April release date and then shared these images with FamilySearch and all the major genealogical websites. Someone needs to tell NARA about this, and it's probably better for FS to send a whole list of issues reported by their users rather than each user sending a separate message.
So far, my experience with the NARA AI results and those I see in the Review Names process suggests that NARA's AI should have "talked" to the one used with the FS Review Names process. The FS AI has so much more "I. "
I have a lot of difficulties finding my relatives because the NARA results are so bad. My last name came out as "Emportant." How would anyone find that by a search on my name Empoliti? I don't think that search recognizes wildcards, e.g., Empo*. Or maybe I just haven't figured out the most efficient way to search there. So far, I'm not impressed, but I am grateful for the availability of the images.
I have to search for people with unique or simple names that I remember living in the neighborhood. If I get a hit, I note the Enumeration District, search on it and march up the various images and streets to find my relative's street and house. I've made some corrections there outside my family, but I couldn't do anything else if I fixed every error I saw.
