(Please note that in case of a discrepancy, project level instructions always trump general keying standards.)

Extra Keying Helps


On some documents the address is handwritten. Please key these. Also there are amendments for names, date and place of births also handwritten. Please key these handwritten records.


"Frühere Addresse" or "Letzte Addresse" means former addresse


some of the handwritten pages are double pages. On the left hand side are Name, Vorname, Strasse und Geburt (birth); on the right hand side are Name Vorname Strasse and Tod (death) Obviously we do not keye Geburt and Tod. Please check the whole page before starting to key so none are missed.

Totgeburt - stillborn.
Geburt - Birth
Tod - Death
Namenlos - without name
Zentralgefängnis - zentral prison

It would be much quicker to key these if the dropdown menus had numbers to select the items, apart from the Birth Day and Birth Year fields as these are numeric. --Katerimmer (talk) 07:04, 27 January 2017 (MST) **Kate, We have updated this setting. For all image sets you download after the timestamp there will be numbers for the dictionary entries. Annafechter (talk) 14:20, 27 January 2017 (MST)
