Freakin Friday??

The other day while it rained here (once again), I was working in Ontario Marriages, at Ancestry.  I was rather amazed at the horrible indexing, and that says something, cause their indexing has LONG been a bone of contention around here.  I have no count on how many marriage records in this data base are indexed in error, but I found quite a few.  Seems that the groom's mother's name is repeated for the bride's mother's name. 

Let the images speak for themselves, Ancestry.com.






Sad, sad, sad.

Agreed....but I have found it in other areas of ancestry and have begun to add the correction...at least in the census indexing.

Yes Linda, we can add corrections now, and I have, but in this case I would have been correcting for hours, maybe days. My internet connection has been a bit "under-powered" lately, and I just did not have that kind of time to donate. I would rather spend my volunteer hours somewhere else right now.
