Too-Too Thursday - The Worst Indexing Mistake Ever

Sorry, Family Search, but how the heck did this get past your double check system?  On the 1940 North Dakota Index:  Same House Koppenhaver. I checked the page and there is no one by that first name. As if!

  1. Wow! Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We looked and found it was the arbitrator who changed the information. That individual hasn't made that mistake more than this one time. We can only assume it was a mistake of a keystroke or something just as easy to miss.

    These are the types of mistakes that we try to catch before publishing our indexes. We'll do our best now to keep this situation from happening in the future. As for the past, we don't know how long it will take to fix it, but we'll get to work on it.
