(Typically, if the document is more than 120 years old, all individuals will be deceased.) Reject the image if it lists any living individuals. • If the following codes are returned from querying the ODBC, the image may be uploaded to the FamilySearch Wiki: K1, L1, M1, N1, and R1. • If the image is acceptable, follow any special instructions associated with T9A in the ODBC database, and then upload the image to the FamilySearch Wiki using the “Upload the Image” instructions. • If the ODBC query returns any other codes than K1, L1, M1, N1, or R1, the image must be rejected. • If the image is rejected, send the user a letter explaining why the image was rejected.
