Common Keying Errors Found by Reviewers


Handwriting interpretation has been the most consistent error thus far. Among the most common mistakes:

  • Witt or Will is usually actually Widd, which is short for "Widdow"
  • o and e are commonly confused
  • c and r are commonly confused
  • H, F, and P are frequently misrecognized.

I have a very fragmented document piece in very poor condition. In several places I can see that that there are names written, but can't decipher them. Do I key illegible for each of these unreadable names or just put in one illegible designation to indicate a group of illegible names?
