Correction of transcription / tagging errors on Fold3
This form is to enable WFA members to feedback errors they discover on the WFA's Library edition of fold3. These will be vetted and sent to Ancestry/Fold3 on a regular basis.
Please note: If there are 'facts' that you know to be incorrect on the documentation (for example the man having an unrecorded middle name) but this is not detailed on the card or ledger, this is NOT something that it is possible to correct.
However if (for example) due to bad handwriting on the original card or ledger a field has been incorrectly indexed (or 'mis-tagged') when the record was digitised, this CAN be corrected. See the example below. This was originally indexed (tagged) - understandably - as Darley, but needs to be amended to the correct name of Darby. This is the kind of correction that CAN be submitted.
In summary, it is errors in the index which we are seeking rather than errors or omissions on the cards.
The request for your email address below is to enable questions to be asked should aspects of the submission need clarification. Email addresses will not be used for any other purpose other than for this reason.
