Re: How do you deal with transcription errors?
If the error is in the census and you can check the census there is an option to report this. Also if the spelling in the cenus is wrong then again there is an option to report this. I have done this a number of times when looking at the census on Ancestry.
If the error is on the BMD index there is an option to report this. You can also see if it is recorded on YorkshireBMD. The transcribers of YorkshireBMD are from the local registration office looking at the original certificates on microfiche. The advantage of the marriage details on Yorkshire BMD is they add the location of where the marriage took place ..Register Office or name of church. When I note the spelling is wrong I would use the correct spelling and ad a note stating is was spelt...xxx on xxx
