FamilySearch Indexing: Canada, Ontario—Marriages, 1869-1927, Project Updates
County name recorded only once at the top of the document
The name of the county is not written in the same place on all images. When the county name is entered only once at the top of the document, but not repeated within the records, index that county for each record on the image.
Batches with both marriage licenses and marriage certificates
Throughout some batches, an image with a marriage license also has an image with a marriage certificate. Index both marriage licenses and marriage certificates. Fill in all fields with the information on each image.
Common Indexing Mistakes:
- Assuming the maiden name of the bride. Do not assume the father's surname is the maiden name of the bride. See 102813 Basic Indexing Guidelines: Names for how to index Maiden Names.
- Incorrectly marking images as No Extractable Data that should be indexed. See "How to index dual page registers" on the Project-Specific Instructions.
- Some registers are split into two separate images. Click here to see an example.
- Index the requested fields as found on each image.
- Not all fields can be indexed from each image.
- Do not index missing fields from the previous or next image.
