Q: I am confused keying the African American Newspapers. If it lists the city and state where they live and
 
-
I key it in, why does it come up as a error and will only except the state? Do I just key in states and
 
-
not the cities?

A: The dictionary for that project was poorly chosen. It does not contain cities, nonetheless, they are to be keyed, you will have to override the validation by pressing f7. --[[User:Paulmd199|Paulmd199]] 20:08, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Population then the date

then it lists first and last name, county, and age.

That is all on the document.  Do I add everything I see?  If so, how do I add a column for County and age?  I am very new to this and trying to understand how to work the input pages.  Thank you.

:A: When you review you are only reviewing 1 keyer. Arbitration is when you review two keyers. Most projects are now review only. I think there may be a few USHMM projects that are arbitration. --[[User:Wiedwoman|Wiedwoman]] 14:47, 22 April 2014 (UTC)<br>

Reviewer/Arbitrator

Q: What is the difference between Arbitration and Review? Sorry if that's a silly question butI have only just gained Reviewer status and am about to start!

A: When you review you are only reviewing 1 keyer. Arbitration is when you review two keyers. Most projects are now review only. I think there may be a few USHMM projects that are arbitration. --Wiedwoman 14:47, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
