Feel free to add to or edit information in this discussion tab as necessary. Please take time to become familiar with the General Keying Standards and be sure to read all instructions on the main project page.

Extra Keying Helps
ob = death / died
aetat = age, so if it says something like "ob 1635 aetat 80" this would mean he died in 1635, age at death 80. --Katerimmer 18:00, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
Common Keying Errors Found by Reviewers
Individuals with single names should be keyed in Given Name, not Surname, field.
Individuals with one name ' or ' another name, key the 2nd name in the Alias field.
When Year Range is seen, key the earliest year in the range.
When keying information for one person, it says that they were 'appointed' on a date, following the death of the previous person. The year that this person was appointed should be entered as the death year of the previous person.
If 1st entry on page is a continuation of the person on the previous page, enter blanks for the name, unless it is on that page and enter other information, especially when death info is stated.

Q. Should the initials after the name be entered, i.e. S.T.D., S.T.B, D.D.? I am assuming they should not, since they appear to be degrees and those are not usually included in the suffix.
Q. Not really sure where to post this, but when it says something like "James Pitcairn, 20th July 1759, vice Robert Gilbert resigned", this does not mean that Robert Gilbert "served in a vice position", it means that James Pitcairn was appointed to replace Robert Gilbert. I am assuming that the instruction about not keying the names of people who "served in vice positions" does mean not to key these "vice" names. N.B. I posted this in the Suggestions section as it was not a question, but somebody has moved it into the Questions section and labelled it with a Q --Katerimmer 17:55, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
Q: please could the question about Initials after the name be answered. Most of the sets I am viewing contain these initials, some are recognized in the suffix box i.e. DD others like STD are not. When reviewing them I remove them, I hope that is correct.
A: looking at the question and answer for new projects Anna says, not to key the letters after the name as suffix. I have removed them. --Elisabeth power 05:44, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
Q: Many of the surnames particularly the early ones have De in front I have always put it in as part of the name, but the batch I am currently reviewing leaves it out. I am adding it, I hope that is correct.
The above 2 issues are occurring in most of the reviews I do and I would appreciate advice. pclesle
You have keyed correctley the "de" should be keyed as part of the surname. I have also added them in review. --Elisabeth power 05:44, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Hand written pages
I'm reviewing sets. I just finished with the Index (not keyed) but after that is a hand written page with a list of bishops. The person keyed the page, but I'm reasonably sure that we're just to key the printed pages. Anyone on now that can give me a shout?
I had a page with printed names, but also a list of hand written names. I ignored the handwritten names.--Elisabeth power 15:14, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
