Search/Images (Explore Historical Images) : Add an indicator when the image had been indexed
I would like to have on FamilySearch.org two different places to search historical records: 1.Historical Records Indexed (we have this one) and 2. Historical Records Unindexed
We have 'Explore Historical Images" (research/Images) that comprehend both kinds of records (indexed and unindexed). However, there is no indicator if the images that I am browsing are already indexed or not.
Could you add some indicator? We really need to know if we have to see page by page or if it is already indexed.
In my opinion, the Catalog is really the best way to explore unindexed historical records. It has a magnifying glass icon next to films or image groups that have index entries associated with some of the images.
As another indicator, if you're browsing images, the blue button ("Attach to Family Tree") is grayed out if there are index entries associated with the page.1
Thank you @Julia Szent-Györgyi !!
I like to use Images because sometimes I find more collections there than in the catalog.
The 'Attach to Family Tree" button is also available with unindexed images. At least in some collections I worked with. (La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Cemeteries)1
The blue button on the image browser is only available with unindexed images. As I said, on images with associated index entries, it's grayed out. On those, the system wants you to use the index, not the image. (Which is Exactly Backwards from correct genealogical practice, but I digress.)
I have completely given up on Search - Images. It is unusably error-ridden and under-labeled in the part of the world I mostly work in. (It gives no indication whatsoever about the denomination of church registers, for example.)2
Thank you again!
My bad (about the blue button) .1
