US, Minnesota—Veterans Grave Registrations, 1930–1975 [M3BT-L5C]
The second image is a continuation of the form in the first image but there is no name or date. Do I say ' no, no extractable data' ? Do I use the information on the first image and then delete the second image? Please help!
You will mark this NED however, you will use Place of Burial of Veteran as the burial place and the Cemetery as (obviously) the Cemetery. This is also covered in the Project Instructions.
your links come up blank...I am still confused, as I have the same question as Ericka. We put NED for the second page, but then you mentioned to use Place of Burial and Cemetery as the burial place and cemetery...do you mean we would use this information on the entry for the first image?
That is what I would assume, as it is a continuation, but I wanted to make sure. The instructions are not all that clear either.
Yes you do. If you look at the Project Instructions under What to Index, there is an example for "How to Index a Grave Registration Record (Page 2 of 2)". Use the second page as Reference Images page (accessed by the menu item in red square on the left page), so it opens in a second window. Then you can enter the burial place (if given) and cemetery in Image 1/Batch 1 .1
How do you know the next image is for the same person, even though it follows? Not necessarily same person guaranteed.
I just figured out how to search for a project on this community. Thank you!0

@nanlwar You look at the reference images to determine if the previous image is the beginning of the record. The indexer who has the beginning of the record will index the information and take any needed information from the "next image" using the reference images. The indexer who gets the continuation portion of the record does not create an index and if there is nothing else to index from that image, make is No, No Extractable Data.0
@nanlwar Each batch contains only One Record. The Project Instructions show examples of how to index a 2-page grave registration, so I would trust that the photograph/image is correct for "front (page 1) and back (page 2)". When you finish indexing the record using info from page 1 & 2, then is when you go to Images and mark page 2 as NNED.1
As a gentle reminder to everyone, please, please read and follow the Project Instructions exactly - in the ones I've reviewed, I'm finding about 50% of the entries for Burial Place and Cemetery Name have been indexed incorrectly. Both the PI & the Field Helps state that the indexer should enter the complete Locality ie: Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota and Cemetery Name: Calvary. Do not enter the word "Cemetery" or the word "County." Accuracy is more important than speed in indexing and reviewing 😎2
