what kind of records are these?
I got a batch today: UK, England, Cumberland—Parish Registers, 1590–1960 [Part A][MQ3Z-QFX]
It is a list of names and dates with no indication of what kind of records they are. I assume they are either baptisms or burials. None of the reference images give any clues either.
I think the list is an index to the volume with dates given rather than page numbers. The project instructions say not to index indices where only names and page numbers are given. But do index pages where dates are given.
I'll hold on to the batch for a couple of days in case this query produces an answer.
Well, I never would have guessed that. Thanks.0
@Melissa S Himes I am trying to find out something for you guys on these0
If they are marriages this batch can still not be indexed since the indexing form for marriages requires names for bride and groom and no sex is indicated in the records (though one could usually be guessed, but that's a no-no).
Frankly, I would mark them No, No Extractable Data and see if that gets anyone's attention at FamilySearch. My guess is that someone is just sending them back out for reindexing. There is also no reason why these typewritten documents couldn't be indexed by computers rather than humans.0
Thanks, @Maile L - I am sure you are trying. There needs to be someone in direct contact with Indexing Operations to address these situations as they happen, not weeks after the fact. Although I wonder if it is much of a priority as it seems like the indexing projects are pretty sparse, except for Ireland.0
