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.
