Information

Project Name: South Africa Dutch Reformed Church Records

Project Owner: Travis Mecham, 801-240-5017, tqmecham@familysearch.org

Alternative Contacts: Caleb Pusey, 801-240-2592, caleb.pusey@ldschurch.org; Heather Walgren, 801-240-9458, hwalgren@familysearch.org

Project Completion Deadline: June 05, 2011

Instructions

  • Go to “File,” “Open Project,” and select “South Africa Dutch Reformed Church Records” from the list on the Waypointing Wiki page from the drop-down menu, then click “OK.”
  • Locate and mark any camera operator, focus images or title boards as “Administrative.” For this project, the first two images will likely be the only Administrative images in a folder.
  • The Consolidated Form for this project has 4 fields:
  1. Beginning Year: Put the earliest year found in this field.
  2. Ending Year: Put the latest year found in this field. If the latest year is the same as the earliest year, leave this field blank.
  3. Record Type: Select the record type that describes the images best from the drop-down list.
  4. Alphabetical Sequence: Put the first letter of the first town, followed by a dash, and then put the first letter of the last town. There should not be a space between the letters and the dash. Example: A-E.
  • Once the consolidated form is complete, highlight the item it applies to and click “New.”
  • Repeat this process until all books have been Waypointed with their own Consolidated Form. Most folders in this project will only have one Consolidated Form waypoint.
  • When you are confident that all waypoints are correct, click “Finish.” A new folder should load, or you can start with step 1 of these instructions to open a new folder.
  • When you have finished your first folder, please send an email to Travis or Caleb, so they can audit your work and give feedback on any issues they find.

Helpful Tips

  • The records in this collection are in English, Dutch, or Afrikaans. The Notes should be in English, and should give you the record type and the first city in the folder. If you need help locating any information, please call the Project Owner.
  • If a folder only has one city, please put the first letter of that city as the only letter in the Alphabetical Sequence field. Example: if all the images in a folder were from Beaconsfield, the Alphabetical Sequence would be B.
