What Type of Record is This?
I'm having trouble figuring out how to label this (Burial, Marriage, etc.). As far as I can tell, there's nothing in the document that tells me which it is. So, how do I index it? Thanks.
Please provide the batch name and code [XXXX-XXX] so someone can help you further.0
It's an alphabetical index, and how (or if) you index the index depends entirely on the specific project's instructions, so as maryellen said: batch, please?0
Batch Name is South Africa - Church of the Province of South Africa, Parish Registrs, 1801-2002 and the code is M35F-4MZ0
From the Project Instructions:
- Indexes are images with only a name and reference information, such as page or volume number, with no other information, such as dates, available. Indexes should be marked as No, No Extractable Data.
Complicating this - there is a date - but that still doesn't indicate whether it is a death record or birth record, etc. Also there are no reference images for prior/subsequent pages.
This certainly seems to be an index rather than a specific type of record. I would probably mark it no extractable data and download another batch.1
The type of record appears to be baptisms:

@Emily Horton, also whenever a batch is marked NNED, it goes back to a higher review before anything is discarded - Happy indexing!0
Good to know!1
