In the next few minutes you will see the number of Arbitrate/Review image sets increase dramatically.
Why? As we reviewed the image sets that have been completed for this project we noticed that there were some fields that weren’t keyed at all as well as fields that weren’t keyed correctly. In order to add this information, and maintain the quality of the index, we felt the best option was to return the arbitration/review image sets so the data could be entered correctly.
And the next question, what needs to be fixed? The two main fields we noticed errors in were Event Type and Event Location. Each card needs to have an Event type entered. If it is not a Birth, Marriage, Death, Burial, or Will/Court it is Other. And for the location many of the cards have a location on them but for some reason they weren’t entered. When I was looking over a few image sets I also noticed that quite often the incorrect form type was selected, and not all of the names on the cards were keyed. You can visit the project page to review the field helps.
Happy arbitrating and reviewing!
