Peru, Ica—Registros de la Iglesia Católica, 1627–1976 [M3K9-QSC]
I am Analyze Indexing this batch and the project only has marriage and burial templates. The first image has mixed records, I indexed a marriage but there are 3 baptisms that should be indexed at a later time in a different project.
I am confirming NED for the second image which has 7 baptisms. No problem with that one.
How can those 3 baptisms be addressed?
Thank you for any help you can provide me.
Thank you for your clear question. You explained it so well I didn't need to read the images.
Church records often include all religious ceremonies that involve the church: baptisms/christening, marriage, funeral.
Records are provided by and indexing is requested by sources outside of FamilySearch, so as volunteers we only record what is requested in the Project Instructions. This is why it is so important to read each project's instructions and look at the examples before starting on it.
From the Project Instructions:
- Index all burial and marriage records.
- Mark all other images in Step 1: Images as No, No Extractable Data.
So, you are correct to mark the second image NED. The baptism records may or may not be addressed in a separate indexing project. However, if the images that you are indexing from are made available on FamilySearch once indexing is finished, researchers will be able to see the baptism information.1
I found this information on Family Search's wiki site for this project.
What is in This Collection?
This collection consists of Catholic church records from Harare including birth and marriage records. Records may include name, birth date, parents' name, baptism date, death date and marriage date. Additional records and/or images may be added to this collection in the future.0
Thank you for your response. But, I wondered if the image may be tagged for future indexing. If they are not caught, because they haven't been classified as NED, how would someone find them if they are not indexed? They would not become Record Hints.0
I'm just another indexer and patron.
One other possibiltity that hasn't been mentioned is that, perhaps, those baptisms were alreay indexed in a prior project, so the current project is just to index records that were missed last time.
But for the "Peru, Ica—Registros de la Iglesia Católica, 1627–1976" project, the index isn't required to get ot a perticular record; someone who knows a place and date, or wants to browse a place for a particuar time range, can look it up under "Records". The search https://www.familysearch.org/records/images/search-results?page=1&place=5864&endDate=1976&startDate=1627&lifeEvent=127183 probably turns up everything that the project is indexing.1
All NNED batches are re-examined by a higher FS authority & any record missed will be indexed appropriately0
