I have had a couple of batches where the person was from Mexico, and the race recorded as "In" but that was crossed our and a 3 was writtnen in. &nbsp;How should that be indexed? &nbsp;Share Batch&nbsp;189291006 .[[User:Purplecata2|Purplecata2]] 12:36, 3 April 2012 (UTC)  -  Please see Updates
 
 
 
Batch has a bunch of lines with information crossed out for children under 5 years old in columns 17, 18 and 19. &nbsp;Normally if there was no information and a line in the field it would be marked blank, but these have information in them. &nbsp;Index the crossed out info or mark blank?

There is a "R" in City field but a rubber stamp has been applied saying "Same house". Go with the Same House? Or keep the R? SB 189253792 &nbsp;[[User:Aprilrobertson|April Robertson - Admin/Owner of Facebook Unofficial Share Batch Group]] 04:27, 3 April 2012 (UTC) - See Updates
 
 
 
The entry on the Updates page states:
 
''"R and same house written in the residence City field- If there are places in the county and state fields- please index the R- not same house."''
 
What should people index in the City field if there are '''no''' places in the county and state fields? The response leaves that unclear. -- [[User:Dms246|Dms246]] 22:46, 3 April 2012 (UTC)
 
 
 
In the "City, town, or village" column I have found many "R"s written. Should this be indexed as: "R" or "Rural"? I have had it arbitrated both ways and want to know what is correct. Project instructions seem to read, "Rural". - Please see Field Helps
 
 
 
Additional Helps page has the presentation on how to index the project and it states that Same House, Same Place and Rural if they're abbreviated such as R for Rural to type what you see. &nbsp;[[User:Aprilrobertson|April Robertson - Admin/Owner of Facebook Unofficial Share Batch Group]] 13:34, 3 April 2012 (UTC) -

In the Marital Status column we've seen M crossed out and a 7 written in a few times now in share batches in the Facebook Group as well as in the Skype Group. &nbsp;How should this be indexed? &nbsp;Don't have a Share Batch #. &nbsp;Most times it's been individuals who are of a marriagable age but a few times it's been seen with 2 and 4 year olds. &nbsp;[[User:Aprilrobertson|April Robertson - Admin/Owner of Facebook Unofficial Share Batch Group]] 01:01, 3 April 2012 (UTC) - See Updates
