I was indexing marriages. There were two records of marriages to a page. I was able to index those 2. When it was time to do #3 I didn't know how to turn a page or find the next record to index.
Hi Patrice. If you could provide us with the batch number or code you were working on we can give you a more definitive answer. The batch number is the long number at the top of the batch you're working on ending in [xxxx-xxx] a mix of letters and numbers. Just copy and paste. This will allow us to see the batch.
Thank you for indexing. We're glad you're here.
Hello Patrice! This is a very common question. These projects have a preset number of entry forms. Once you have indexed all the information on your image, you need to delete the unused entry forms to be able to submit your batch. To do this, click on the trash can icon in the toolbar. Select "all blank entries", click Delete. You will now be able to submit your batch!
I am having the same issue. I am able to see that there are 4 more pages (thus the additional 8 entries) in the reference section, but unable to access them to index.

I am unable to access your image @rebeccaggreen1 - perhaps it has been submitted? Once a batch is submitted it can no longer be shared.
We don't index from the reference images. The blue bar in your batch will tell you how many images are in your batch. It will most likely say Image 1 of 1. The next line says Entry 1 of 10. All you need to do is index the records on YOUR Image. So, if there are 8 entries on your page, you will need to delete the unused 2 entries to get the batch to submit. If there were only two names to index on your page, then you would have 8 entries to delete.
The reference images that you see will be indexed by other people. You don't need to worry about them. The only time we even need to look at reference images is when a document spans two images and our last image has information we need from the next reference image. (Rare - and not in this project). The other reasons to look at a reference image could be to 1) obtain a date from the previous image - the instructions will advise when you can do this, 2) to compare handwriting to decipher unknown letters, 3) to see if something if the records are in alphabetical order, or just to get a better feel for the project.
Thank you, Melissa. I deleted the extra entries and submitted the batch. In subsequent batches, I have definitely used the reference images to help decipher handwriting. Thank you for your help.
Good people I have glanced at the above suggestions but see no Answer to the Question - How Do You Turn Over the Page or put another way How Do I get to the Next Image in my Batch to continue indexing the Next Page
I'm indexing Baptisms
There are 30 Records in my Batch. I have come to the End of the first Page having completed 9 Records but for the life of me cannot find How to TURN OVER the Page or get to the Next Image page or Page 2
@Trevor Rubelli The batches have a preset number of entry forms. In your case, it is 30. Once you have indexed everything on your image, you must delete the blank forms to submit the batch. So, if there are 9 names to enter on your image. After you complete those entries, click on the Trash Can Icon. Click "All Blank Entries"and then click "Delete". You will now have 9 completed entry forms and you may submit the batch.
@Melissa S Himes Many thanks Melissa for your prompt response
As I understand it now. There is no other way for me to complete my entire Batch of 30 Names except by Submitting each completed individual Page/Image (of only 9 Forms/Names) separately
By doing the above will also automatically bring me to the next 9 names on the next Image ?
Hi Trevor. Not quite there yet. Batches have images. Notice on your entry form, the blue box of above it probably says IMAGE 1 of 1. If there were more images in your batch, the blue box would say IMAGE 1 of 5 (or more). That means there is one single image that you are going to work from. Once you complete all the names on that image, you will submit that batch. Then you will be able to get another batch to complete.
If there were more than 1 image, then you would click on that next image which would show up as a thumbnail on the bottom of your screen. You would be given another set of entry forms which would also say 1 of 30. You would again enter the information on Image 2 and if there were not 30 names, you would use the trash can to delete the unneeded entries.
There are some excellent videos on YouTube which help us to learn about indexing.
Here is a menu that goes through all steps of indexing:
And here is a great link to a video which shows this deletion process in less than 3 minutes!
