Help us improve the indexing and arbitration of this project.

Click the Edit This Page button to help index this project. Please put your comments at the bottom of the page  Messages will be removed after careful review by support. Any updates will be posted to the Project Updates page.



Many commonly asked questions, such as indexing crossed out information, have already been answered - Click the Basic Indexing Instructions link on the Project Links page to read them.

If you wish to post a mismatch directly to this page, please put it at the end of this list and include the batch number as the film cannot be evaluated without that information.)

When reporting a batch where the data doesn't match the image, include which segment of the project it is from, such as Essex. This will help us identify the problem and be able to take care of it in a more timely fashion. We really appreciate your help in this matter.

How should London place names be indexed, e.g. Westminster St Annes, Hammersmith St Johns? Should they be indexed as is or listed under the relevant county, e.g. Middlesex Hammersmith? If the response below does not answer your question, please call support with an open batch with this issue.
Why do so many arbitrators mark a child's condition "U" when the space is clearly blank? Pleaese call support when you have a batch open for review.

I understand from the update information that London is to be placed in the birth town and not county field.  However, I am finding birth information similar to London, Islington.  Should London stand alone in the field, or should I add the additional information?  From the updates "City or Town - If there is more than one entry in this field, do not separate them with "or".

Also, is it possible to organize the update information page by field headings?  I refer back often and find I have to scroll from the top to refresh my memory on a single poinit.  Thank you for considering! Thank you.  Other indexers prefer a chronological order so the most recent updates are on the top of the list. We will see if there is some way we could address both wishes.

On the Project Updates tab, the Folio paragraph says to accept a previously entered number or enter the number if it is stamped on the form, otherwise to leave the field blank. The Basic Indexing Instructions for the project suggest trying to determine the folio number from previous or next pages. Which is correct? If the latter, does the folio number on the previous page apply to the current page?  Project Updates take precedence over other information.
