Feel free to add to or edit information in this discussion tab as necessary.

Extra Keying Helps
Eodem: On some of the images for the "Date of acceptance" there it says "eod" or "eodem" (this may look like "cod" or "codem" in some handwriting or if some of the character strokes have faded). Eodem is a Latin word for "same"; treat it the same as you would ditto marks.
Common Keying Errors Found by Reviewers
Crossed out names have not been keyed, when they have not been replaced.
Do not use the full stop punctuation. Key Joh. Joch. Friedr. as Joh Joch Friedr --Elisabeth power 20:09, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
Do not expand names. --Elisabeth power 21:39, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

Do not enter occupations into the prefix field. We do not key occupations for this project. Example of occupations: Kaufmann, Arbeitsmann, Buchhalter.... --Elisabeth power 20:04, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Q: I am keying citizen register from 1894 and sometimes it gives the name of the town/village and the province, or even the country. Do we key all? ie town/village, province and/or country? --Elisabeth power 13:06, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
