Name - This is a Duplicate of Entry #9
In searching for some information about a family named Blair, I came across this record. Should it be reported, can it be corrected?
"Virginia Births and Christenings, 1584-1917", database, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X566-B6R : 28 January 2020), This Is A Duplicate Of Entry #9 Batch #i01049-1, Film # 2033444. Blair, 1900.

My understanding is that no corrections are made after the indexing has been completed. It looks rather odd on the Results page, but there is a link from the result immediately below that leads to the same record. I would not worry.
(No name at all for the child, so should "Blair" have been indexed for her, or just "Female", as shown on the document? Wrong date, too, I notice from the original and other records - should be 27 not 21 May 1900.)0
Thanks, Paul. There should have been no names indexed for the child and then FS would have probably added the surname of Blair through the magic of programming.
Of course, it made me wonder what else is out there and a search of Given Name: Duplicate and Surname: Duplicate as an Exact Search produced 3,391 records. Without the Exact Search technique there are 12,397 records with the words Duplicate, Duplicate Image, <Duplicate> in the names fields.
Someone should probably scrub that data.1
