Re: Reviewing--Blanks

Posted: 1359519071000
Classification: Query
From what's been previously said when this has come up, as far as post-processing by Ancestry is concerned, there's no difference between a field that's simply been left blank and a field that's been marked [Blank]. (Which makes it extra annoying to see keyers go to the extra time & trouble to Ctrl+B entire pages.)

Speaking for myself, I almost always remove them as part of the process I go through to review a page, because I otherwise tend to have difficulty picking actual text out of pages that are a sea of [Blank], and especially tend to miss those cases when something is in an uncommonly used column (such as a prefix in the CA RR project).
