Feel free to add to or edit information in this discussion tab as necessary. Please take time to become familiar with the World Archives Keying Standards and be sure to read all instructions on the main project page. (Please note that in case of a discrepancy, project level instructions always trump general keying standards.)

Extra Keying Helps


Common Keying Errors Found by Reviewers


Please remember that we do not key records where there is only a name/names and no date, nor do we key records that only have a date and no name/names

Questions and Answers

Do we still index a record with a name and only a year? Also, if we come across a record we don't index, do we blank that entry or just skip it and continue to the next line? If you have a keying question that is not answered on the project page or in any of the information above, click “EDIT” and ask it here. (If you click on Rich Editor you won't have to worry about formatting your entry.) Then click “WATCH” at the top right on this page and you will be notified via email when an update has been made.
