Project Revisions and Reminders

Common mistakes being made in this project:

  • Indexers are only indexing the first record on an image which has multiple records. In projects which vary in the number of records per image, the program is set at one record per image. It is the responsibility of the indexer to determine the number of records on the image and set the number of records per image accordingly. If you need help to add records, please click 101228 for a document which explains how to add records.

  • The letters "in" at the end of the name indicates the principal is a female. Do not index the letters "in" at the end of the name.

Possessive Name Suffixes:

  • Do not index possessive name suffixes, such as -in, -en, -s, or –ens, on given names and surnames. Only index the root form of the name.

  • For example, if the entry reads “Sohn der Katharina Müllerin“ index the name “Müllerin” as Müller; or if the entry reads “Sohn des Martin Schmidts”, index the name “Schmidts” as Schmidt.
