Please read the project instructions carefully before indexing any batches. Review the project instructions and the field helps frequently for updates.

Summary of Project Updates

We have discovered an error in the Danish instructions for this project regarding how to index the marriage date. The instructions should have said to record the registration date if no marriage date was given on the document. Because of this omission in the Danish instructions, no date may have been entered in some batches.

To correct this omission, we are sending these batches out again for indexing. If you download one of these returned batches, please check the marriage date fields.  If no date was entered, examine the record carefully. If a marriage date was not provided in the record but a registration date was provided, please index the registration date in the marriage date fields. The submit the batch.

The corrected Danish and English instructions are included below for your review.
