Extra Keying Helps


On opening an image that looks as though it could be "image with no data", please check the right hand side of the page too, it could be "index". Some of the sets have the index only on the right hand side.

'expanding years' above: does that mean, if date is shown as 04, we key 04 and not 1904? Thanks.

A: Yes, it means you should key it as 04 if that is how it appears on the image. --Katerimmer (talk) 10:18, 4 September 2017 (MDT)

 

Prefix: I have a parent shown as Mrs. Jones. Since there is no prefix field, do I leave the given name blank, or do I put Mrs? Thank you for your time.

A: Leave it blank. --Katerimmer (talk) 11:11, 6 September 2017 (MDT)

Q: When the parent name is that of a guardian should the name still be listed?

A: Yes, thank you
