Talk:FamilySearch Indexing: Passenger Lists, Project Updates
What to do when passenger names aren't listed?
I've discovered that a large portion of the batches here have no names, given or surnames, for the individuals. However, they do list a relative or friend that they're planning to stay with. Historically, I've just made the field blank, because that's the literal way to interpret it. However, I know at least one of the partially indexed batches I've received had the names of the relatives/friends typed out in the surname and given names fields. What are we supposed to do?
What to do when record has has strikeout, or line through it?
What is to be done when an entire record has a line drawn through it?
confusion cleared somewhat
your latest claification with the manifest project was most helpful. I have been doing some of it wrong. I don't think we had good enough directions to start. I think we need be to at ease feeling that we have to write all the names down so their people can find them. We need to trust that you will make sure all the names appear somewhere. I am arbitrating a manifest that lists Nationality or Race. I am arbitrating it to the Nationality. Hope that's right, I can find no definite instructions. Will folks get to look at the actual document? Thanks for your help. Also have a question about the manifests that don't have a name of a ship or a date. They do if I download 10 at a time, but when I index one and don't get to see the others, there is no date on some. What is the point of a list of names if there is no date?
