Quality of entry

Recommended Posts

Kjell Arne Brudvik

It would be nice to have a way to determine a ruleset that could determine the quality of a person record, and it's different citations.

E.g - a score from 0 to 100.

Ranges:

  • 0-20 = Poor quality
  • 20-30 = Low quality
  • 30-50 = Medium quality
  • 50-80 = Good quality
  • 80-90 = High quality
  • 90-100 = Outstanding quality

Example:

  • Birth record (40) has been cited:
    • Citation: Original church record for birth (90)
    • Citation: Original church record for death (60)
    • Citation: Original church record for confirmation (40)
    • Citation: Toombstone (30)
    • Citation: Living relative (80)
    • Citation: Notes from relatives (20)
  • Confirmation record (30) has been cited
    • Citation: Original church record for confirmation (100)
  • Death record (40) has been cited.
    • Citation: Original church record for death (90)
    • Citation: Toombstone (10)
  • Toomstone record (30) has been cited.
  • Marriage record (40) has been cited.

Situations:

  1. Church record for birth + death = 90+60 = 150 - e.g. quality is at 100 (max) - high quality birth record entry.
  2. Toombstone + notes from relative = 30 + 20 = 50 - e.g. medium quality birth record entry.
  3. Notes only = 20 = poor quality birth record entry.
  4. No citations = poor quality birth record.

Then, combine the different records - and have a overall score of that person profile.

Situations:

  1. Person with a birth record score of 90 - would have a 90% score at birth record - e.g. 36 out of 40 - which would deem the total quality at medium quality.
  2. Person with a birth record score of 80 (e.g. 32), confirmation score of 100 (e.g. 30) and a death record score of 90% of death record (e.g. 36) - would have a total score of 98, which means outstanding quality.

This is of course just ideas and thoughts - it would just be a helpful feature to make sure that all your records have at least some quality assurance.
