Find the Parish Attached to a Record
I'm indexing in Swedish and it would be very helpful to figure out what parish I'm indexing so I can look up a gazetteer to help me correctly identify place names as I index. Is there a way to see which parish the record is coming from?
If not, is it possible that that could be added in the future to aid indexers in their efforts for accuracy?
It is always helpful to share your batch code so others can see what you are seeing and provide an answer. The batch code is the series of letters and numbers in brackets.0
It’s a long shot, but that type of information might be found on the first few images of the film that contains your batch image.
With your batch open, click Batch>About Batch. Using that batch image information plus the technique described in the comment at the following link you can locate and peruse the film containing your image, including its header, where you might find the parish name.
This is a bit unorthodox, and beyond the bounds of what is expected of the Indexer or Reviewer, but you’re only using the additional information to guide your interpretation of place names. Good Luck.0
