This is the first day in the last week of our Challenge. I have keyed a few projects during the Challenge that I haven’t keyed for a little while which is most of the reason why we hold Challenges – other than it is fun to have some competition and win prizes!
Our projects this week are…
- Dorset Quarter Sessions is one of our older projects. It is 100% keyed but only 40% of of the review image sets are complete. The records can be difficult to read as there is a lot of variance from the records of the 1600s to the 1900s. This is a snippet of an easier image to review.
- This is another older project. It is 83% keyed, there are 16,000 image sets remaining, and 67% reviewed, so plenty of review image sets too. The records are handwritten but are in preprinted forms so the information is easy to follow. From this record we are keying the Name, Birth year and Birth Place.
- Although this is a newer project we have keyed this type of records before. These are relatively simple records to key with few records per image.
