Looking around for a Trove Tuesday item for today I decided to search for something on January 15th that happened in Cobar where my Mum grew up. I found a few things but one item that stood out was a death notice for someone in another place.
The digitisation of this item was so bad that the OCR transcription was just gobbledegook. So, for today, I decided to correct that entry and spend some time correcting some of the other posts that came up as a result of my search. Whenever I find something from the Trove newspaper collection it is my policy to make corrections to that article and/or the neighbouring articles. See below the transcription and copy of article that I will correct after I finish this post.
1936 'Family Notices.', The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 - 1956), 16 January, p. 1, viewed 15 January, 2013, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article11873693
A quick search on Ancestry confirmed Therese's parents' names, this also confirmed that her surname was spelt BERSEY but I have not been able to find any other records for Therese/Theresa.
I believe that we should all give back to Trove by making corrections to the OCR text thus making for more effective searches by others who may use the resource in the future.
Do you regularly correct the OCR text on Trove?
