Re: How do you deal with transcription errors?

I have never seen the point of recording spelling variations or transcription errors against an individual. They are not facts about the individual but about the parish clerk or the transcriber. They are definitely important for finding further members of the family. I therefore try to have a Shared Note Record - except that I don't link it with anyone - that records the spelling variations and frequent transcription errors for a surname.

That's the theory.... Unfortunately....
