Missing Index Entries

Any creative options for a poorly indexed source?

I’m working through “Virginia Colonial Records, 1607-1853” [https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/virginiacolonial...]. It misses key people clearly referenced in the material.

To avoid linking facts to “random” people listed on the page, is there a way for
a) users (like me) to add index entries?
b) ancestry to add the option they have for un-indexed material where you can simply enter who you'd like to connect the page with?

It's annoying that I need to either link a page to the "wrong" person. Or worse, when ancestry didn't find any names, they don't even give you an option to save to a person in a tree (e.g., https://www.ancestry.com/interactive/61473/47913_b354715-006...). So I need to save locally and manually create the citation. Seems silly.

Thanks,
David
