Is this an indexing question? If so, I can share this with the @Indexing Chat group. If not, please give a little more detail as to what you’re asking 😊
Yes, indexing question. I just didn't know if there was a way to add another field to put in the other information. Say a person didn't have a birth certificate. The death records also tell the birth place: country and town. But on the records I was indexing, it didn't have a place to put the birth town.
That's so nice of you to care! No, there isn't any way to add fields to an indexing project, but anyone researching this person will find this record because the birth information matches what they're searching for, and will then see the birth place.
Don't worry, in indexing, none of the information on the document is lost. We are just creating a searchable index of certain specified categories of information to help researchers locate documents more easily. Once they find a document in the index, they can look at the original image to get the whole story.
Excellent. Thank you!
