"For the most part, you should type what you see and delete information that doesn’t belong".
What about missing information that does belong? I've had multiple instances of Part I of the Headers, FIelds a-d not being populated (i.e., text on census form doesn't appear in the fields to review).
I have been working on Document Headers and have found that many of the scans don't have any scanned information on left side for State, County, District Etc. For california I just get one or two that have California etc. and then ALL the rest are missing ALL the information on State, County etc. It takes a LONG time to type in all this information. Can't these be re-scanned to collect the information.
Some states (Utah, Nevada, Oregon) didn't have this problem until almost 95% of the Document Headers were looked at. I an see that the "blank" ones would be last, BUT, California has just 2% Reviewed and I'm already getting many, many Headers for review with NO Scanned information.
@MinnWisRoots and @Dave Whittick Enter the information from the image into the fields below if they are blank. We are hearing that a lot it seems. You do not need to report when the computer doesn't enter the right information or even close information, just make it match the image.
Am having the same problem as Dave. The first header review I pull up populates the state and city information. All other header reviews I pull up after that are blank and I am filling them in, but it seems like something is wrong with the system. It would be great to get at least ten headers at one time to review instead of having to click on the continue link every single time!
Also, it way too hard to find out where to get help when I have a question. Why is that?
Is someone out there really listening to our concerns and questions????
Yes, we are listening, just make sure you post your question with an image of it, to be able to see it, and specify if it is a Name, Family or Header Review.

So sorry for frustrations. @Teri Luna, the issue of the Header Review populating the state and city information, etc., but the boxes are blank, it is known and reported.
Please fill in the blanks as you are doing. There are different places where you can get help and to answer your own questions.
You can go to the Help Center by clicking on the circle with the question mark in the upper right corner of the page, click on Help Center at the bottom. You can put it in a new tab so that you have it handy. Type in 1950 and it will bring up articles you can look at or you can type a word or so that would have to do with your question in the search. This is also explained at the top of this page. Below are several other links, some of which are at the top of this page.
Because this is a new way of indexing with the automated indexing and then people such as yourself review, there will be glitches as we see that come up that need to be reported so engineers can perfect the software. We appreciate your willingness to participate in this important endeavor.
