Example - Dutch Reformed batch [M3NM-9V9] This is a church membership list.
If I was researching the people listed on that page, I would be very glad to learn where they lived and went to church in 1837.
Consider it a substitute for a census, in a time when they are few censuses.
I forgot. There are the ages of the people too. I have been doing these older ones because a lot of indexers don't.
That makes the information even more useful.
Since reading this conversation, I am now making sure that when I am doing reviewing and these type of modules come up as no available information, I am doing the indexing so that the info is recorded
Just DO NOT index indexes. Names only with unknown numbers next to them.
Sorry, I don't understand . I'm concerned now that I may have been doing something that I shouldn't. Please can you enlighten me.
Join the club. I am still confused. Maybe we shouldn't worry about it. The search engine people use is very advanced. I will continue to enter ij because there is no Y in Dutch.
The confusion that I was referring to was regarding the indexing of images that only have names and dates.
Regarding Y in South African records - Y is used in Afrikaans. It is rather tricky isn't it Harmon, James Bartlett ?
I believe @Harmon, James Bartlett meant to make a comment on a different thread that WAS discussing the ij.
