Feed back from an email from someone in Kiribati
Thank you for your email. Thank you for all that you are doing and continue to do. We've seen errors and really wish to assist, they indexed T for a letter L and more.
I have a question, some of the hatches are of not of birth, death or marriages, but of land owners and voters names. How to index this?
If it can not be indexed, can you still keep this because those names are very important too?
Can we help this person Bwereia Euta email@example.com
@SusanCluff1 you may want to post this is in the Indexing chat https://community.familysearch.org/en/group/100-indexing-chat Thanks for willing to assist them and glad you are a part of Communities!1
It is very hard to answer a question without a batch number to refer to so we can see what you are seeing and also be able to read the batch instructions. So I will give you a basic answer. If the batch instructions state to index birth, death or marriages but there are other record types as you mentioned, the instructions may say to mark those as non-extractable data. When that is done those are reviewed and will be put in the proper project to be indexed. They will not be lost.
As far as the mistakes, I wouldn't know if that record would provide the ability to correct the mistakes by the researcher without seeing it. This would be a question for the Historical Records department.
Having said this, it would be great to follow the instructions of Sheila in the comment above (if you haven't already done so) and post this in the Indexing chat with a project number if possible. Those with like batches would be able to comment to help answer your questions. Thank you so much for reaching out to help this person in Kiribati.0
