Word of Caution

I'm not sure how many of you are doing indexing for FamilySearchIndexing, but I thought I'd mention something I discovered last night. I have been quite accustomed to the censuses with about 40-50 records per image or the marriage indexes (such as a West Virginia batch I did last night) with 2-3 images. I did a batch of South Dakota State census images that had about 20 records. Imagine my surprise when I clicked on the Irish Marriage Indexes (1893-1921) and got a page with 375 records! I had intended to only do one more batch before I went to bed. Instead I ended up doing one of the 3 columns last night and have about 264 more records to enter before week's end! If you want something quick, that's not the one to choose. However, if you want something legible, go for it. The page is typed and very readable!

I know what you mean, I just signed up last night and spent ages with the 1900 census - the digitization is really clear, it is so exciting!
