Just a short note about the progress of the Ancestry Errors Wiki.
Since its creation on 1 August 2011, quite a few errors have have been added to the Wiki. There are now pages available for counties in ten states! While quite a few of the errors concern missing or misplaced locations in census enumerations, there are also entries for place names being misspelled and document pages being out of order, missing, etc.
If you have not already done so, please take a look at the Ancestry Errors Wiki. Explore a few of the pages to see if you have anything to add!
If you are aware of any database errors on any of the online sites–Ancestry.com, Fold3.com (formerly Footnote.com), or other noncommercial sites–please feel free to create a page and write it up. Don’t worry if it is not perfectly written–there are editors on hand to help you out.
You can also post questions to me on this blog post, and I will try to help out.
Only with the help of the whole community can we turn this into a resource that will help all of us search more effectively!
