FamilySearch Indexing: Bahamas—Civil Registration,1850–1959, FAQ
Error: image is invalid or non-existent
In many of the Bahamas- Civil Registration birth records I am unable to see the record number column because it is hidden in the crease/fold/binding of the image. How should these be indexed? (blank or unreadable?)
In a related question, on one page the numbers are partially readable. Since I cannot determine for sure how many digits are missing, I assume the appropriate entry is, for example, “*48”, and not “?48”. However, this turns the entry pink. In support of the above question, I also would like clarification on a completely hidden number as I originally marked it blank, but revised it to unreadable after researching this question in the general instructions. Please advise.
While indexing Bahamas--Civil Registration, 1850-1959/004934260 which is birth records, for the Child's Name I came across several S.B., which I guess to mean 'stillborn.' Is there a special way to handle these records? Please see the information under the Additional Helps tab for this project.
