I am working on South African grave purchase and burial records.
Two images appeared for me to index. Image 2 is an extension of the burial record of image 1 (page must have been too large to capture in one image). Image 1 contains the date of burial, image 2 contains the name of the individual. When indexing, do I put all the information on the image 1 info? Do I put all the information on image 2? Or do put the what I find in image 1 and do the same for image 2, even though they are the same person's information being recorded and mark everything else as "blank".
We'll need the batch code to be sure, but this is what I can give you now: Mark Image 1 as No, No Extractable Data (this will ask if you want to delete the entries for that image. Click "Delete Entries for Image"), as this is a continuation of Image 2. You will use the burial dates that are in Image 1 in the correlating fields in Image 2.
The batch code is on top of your indexing screen and looks like this [1111-AAA]. It can also be accessed under Batch ---> About Batch0
I think this situation is similar to what I have seen in other South African Burial batches recently that had 2 images to be indexed/reviewed. Sorry, but I don't have the batch codes as they have been submitted. It turned out that of the 2 images in the batch, Image 1 was a continuation of the minus 1 (-1) image in the Reference Images, and Image 2 was continued on plus 1 (+1) in the Reference Images. It was possible to match up the correct continuations by comparing the information on the edges of the entries. Hope that makes sense! It seems that the "photographer" (or whoever puts the images together in the batch) got things out of order.
I'm not sure if using the +1 and -1 images for indexing/reviewing is the correct way to do it, but it made sense to me. Let me know if this is okay.0
This is what the general instructions give us on this situation:
What to Do When Records Span 2 Images or to View Additional Images
- If the first record on an image begins on a previous image, don't index it. The record will be indexed as part of the previous batch. Start indexing at the first complete record.
If the last record on an image continues to the next image, index the entire record, including what continues to the next image0
Thanks Larry! In the examples that I mentioned (which may be different to what the original poster is asking about here) I marked the first image as NNED and used the info from the second image and the next image in the Reference Images to complete the batch.0
And that's why I quit doing the South African records. One headache too many for one project.0
@erutherford I try to see it as a challenge!😎 Doesn't always work though!!😃0
Trying to figure out what to do when the information for a burial in South Africa spans two pages, but the pages don't match. I can tell by the sex of the individual and the number of people recorded on each page. The first image needs to be matched with the previous page, but there is no access to that page. The second image should go with the next page, but there is no access. The pages are mismatched. South Africa, Johannesburg—Cemetery Records, 1840–2019 [Part D][MQM8-QKT]0
