Indexing and Arbitration Tips
If you are indexing or arbitrating the US Community project - New York Passenger List 1942-1957 please read the project instructions about indexing ALL names.
Common mistakes I see when arbitrating these records include the following:
- Not adding the names of people who signed the document, found near the bottom. There may be two or three other names of the captain, master, or immigration inspector, etc.
- Do not expand abbreviations of nationality or birth place names. Such as: Amer. just enter Amer or if it says U.S.A. enter USA ; don't forget we do not enter punctuation unless there is a hyphen between surnames. If an address is given do not assume it is a place of birth or nationally, unless it is under the heading "birth" or "nationally".
These are fun records to do because most are typed, if your batch isn't typed, you can return it for someone else to do.
