- This project is recommended for volunteers who are familiar with the indexing process and comfortable using various system features.
Characteristics and Description of This Project
- This project includes records of births.
- Records are generally listed chronologically by year.
- Batches include up to ten images, usually with more than one record per image.
- Records were handwritten in paragraph style, often on preprinted forms.
- Since information on each record is not always in the same order, you will need to read each record carefully to find the information for the various indexing fields.
- Records will sometimes start on one image and continue to the following image.
- The completed index and links to digital images will be freely accessible online to the general public when the collection is published.
