The following observations have been addressed. Click the Discussion tab at the top of this page to report new issues. Please reserve this page for Indexing Support responses.


Note - Lookup lists may not be comprehensive nor should they be considered the complete and final authority for indexing the field.


City or Town - (New 10/21) If there is more than one entry in this field, do not seperate them with "or".

Initials Instead of Names (New 10/13) - If only initials are written for given and surnames, enter all of the initials in the given name field - Example

Bristol - Bristol goes in the city and not the county field.

Occupation - If listed as Farmer's wife, Farmer's son, etc., index what is on the document. If more than one occupation is written, enter each separated by a space with no punctuation. If the document has and between the occupations, such as plumber and joiner, index it is as it is on the document. If there is an ampersand, replace it with the word and.
- If a descriptive word such as "formerly" is used, enter only the occupation.

Entry Numbers - The numbers on the left hand side of the pages for Institution and Vessel forms are recorded for the entry number of the individual. Tab past the schedule number. Example

Surnames -  "The surname may have been written only once for the first member of a family. However, it needs to be repeated for each family member." Please review the field help. 

Places - When a country such as France or a state of the United States of America, is listed in the Where Born column - it is indexed in the Birth County field.
           Channel Islands - (Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Sark, Herm, Jethou, Brecqhou and Lihou). Enter Island name in the Birth County Field and Parish (if recorded) in the Birth town or City Field - Example - (A list of Jersey and Guernsey parishes)

Saint - The word Saint should not be spelled out in place names. Saint should be entered St  However, some batches may still contain place names in the lookup list with Saint spelled out.

Abbreviations - A simple list of English county abbreviations is here.

Occupation - If listed as Farmer's wife, Farmer's son, etc., index what is on the document. If more than one occupation is written, enter each separated by a space with no punctuation. If the document has and between the occupations, such as plumber and joiner, index it is as it is on the document. If there is an ampersand, replace it with the word and.
- If a descriptive word such as "formerly" is used, enter only the occupation.

Arbitration - Record Matching Blank Lines - If one of the indexers inserted a blank line it should be moved to the bottom of the list using the down arrow.

Schedule Number - If the census taker began recording a household at the bottom of the previous census page and continued at the top of the page you are indexing, you should be able to find the schedule number from the previous image. The Field Help has been changed to reflect this in some counties.

Highlights - Some batches are coming in without correct highlights. Efforts to fix the problem are underway.  Please continue to index batches until this issue is resolved.

Vessel/Institution Pages - Some may have only 20 records to record. The template includes 25 lines. The remaining unused lines are marked blank.

Folio Number - Indexers- Record the folio number if it is on the document. If there is no folio number and you are working on a previously indexed batch, accept what the original indexer entered. If there is no folio number on the document or recorded in the header, skip the field. Arbitrators - If the document has no folio number but Key A has entered one, accept that number.

Blank Lines -  Entry Numbers should be sequential and are not recorded for blank lines. 

Example Page - Do not index forms that have "Example" in the upper left corner. Mark the image type as "No Extractable Data" 

If the surname or schedule number is not on the first line - please get the information from the previous image. 

I am unable to complete arbitration: In order to complete the arbitration process, try to submit the batch. This will cause hidden fields to appear. In these hidden fields you can then select the information and complete the arbitration.
1 - If there is information only in Key A, accept Key A
2 - If there is information in both Key A and Key B, accept the information in Key A.
3 - If there is information only in Key B, accept Key B.


Help - If you find a place name or a occupation that is not in the lookup list, please go here and add them following the instructions at the top of the page. 


Mismatched Batches (Please include the project with the mismatch numbers) - Some of the 1871 UK Census batches are already indexed with names that do not match the names on your image. If you open one of these batches, please contact FamilySearch support and give them the film and batch numbers. After reporting the numbers, please return the batch with the reason of "Review Image Quality." You can find the film and batch numbers at the very top of the program window when you have your batch open. Example    Film numbers already reported can be seen here.
