Skill Level: Intermediate

  • This project is recommended for volunteers who are familiar with the indexing process and comfortable using various system features.

Characteristics and Description

  • These church records were handwritten and may be difficult to read.
  • This project has three main types of records: births and baptisms, banns and marriages, and deaths and burials.
  • It will require careful scrutiny of the records to determine the type because there are many formats, including paragraph formats and table formats.
  • Columns, when they exist, do not always have headings to define the contents.
  • The order of information for the fields to be indexed varies from record to record.
  • Each batch has just one image, with up to 50 records per image.
  • Each record has up to 19 fields to index.
  • No highlights are available for this project.
