Zimbabwe—Voter Registration, 1938–1973 (Part B)
gary_noble, I have been working on this project for several months. I have obviously made mistakes and might have missed some information but I have tried hard to follow the project and field instructions. I know where to look for maiden names and also where to find the birth place and date for the claimant. I also understand the name changes for the country over the years and have been careful to include the correct country name.
The Registration place has always been some what confusing, so I much appreciate your post. The problem is that the project and field instructions do not lead to this end result.
Project Examples for the Registration place field: #1Lomagundi A, Southern Rhodesia. #3 Salisbury, Southern Rhodesia. The actual constituency shown at the bottom of the page is Gwelo Rural. #4 Bulawayo Central, Southern Rhodesia. #Field help Gatooma, Rhodesia
None of these examples fit the format that is proposed in your post.
So my Question is as an indexer advised to follow the instructions carefully what am I supposed to do?
To me this seems to be mainly a problem with "the malicious place name standardiser"
Any guidance or suggestions would be much appreciated. The batch I currently have open does include Gatooma.
