Occupation - Type what you see - There has been some confusion on this issue.

Names Not Fully Recorded - If a family member is referred to, but the name or surname is not given, do not index the individual. For example, if the document says, "James Brown and Mother" you would only index one record, for James Brown. - Example

- Part of an individual's name is given, index the part of the name that is given.

  • If the record says, "James Brown and Mary," index two records, one for James Brown and one for Mary.

- Family Surname represented with dittos - Example

Marital Status - Do not assume a woman with the title Mrs. is married.
                          - Do not index the marital status unless it was clearly and unmistakably recorded.
