Can I correct indexing?
I've noticed an error in an image that was indexed.
How can I correct it? (I have started with some indexing myself)
It relates to the following image:
The baptism place is indicated as: Caernarfonshire, Wales, United Kingdom
The correct place is: Carnarvon, Northern Cape, South Africa
Looking at the index record Baptism place (Original) it indeed shows Carnarvon. The automated standardization to: Caernarfonshire, Wales, United Kingdom does need correction. @N Tychonievich
In the meantime those wanting to attach the record in Family Tree can bypass the index by using the Source Box button. The correct location can be entered in this source.1
Thanks for the response.
Is this forum the correct place to indicate potential errors?
Is there a way that someone like myself could make fixes?0
No, the correct place is the Search category: https://community.familysearch.org/en/categories/search
But a Moderator can move your issue to the correct category.
Please continue to suggest corrections to indexes.
There is a new 'edit every field' indexing app that is being implemented on collections. If/when it reaches collections that you see need correction - you will be able to edit those records immediately - without submitting corrections here in Community. It is a powerful editing app and will take a bit of getting used to - but even small edits such as place corrections add up. Many hands make light work.1
@JacquesBlaauw1 I cannot open the link you provided. For some reasons, when you put a link on a new line, Community messes up the URL. Can you try again? I need to see the error before I can report it for a fix. Just don't put it on a new line and I think it will work. Or give me the name of the record collection and enough information about the person whose record you were looking at that I can find it. Thanks.0
If you replace %3A with : I think that will work2
I see that -- when reading the Manifest for the 'Cimbria' (arr NY Apr 23, 1881) -- you have somehow duplicated the entire Manifest, but assigned it to the "City Of Brussels' Manifest (same date).
You might want to correct this.
