Alot of discussion about this recently and we need a ruling...

Death Town / City Field

Original Town / city name is crossed out.  Precinct is written in.  We know not to index the precinct.  Do we index the original town / city name since we dont index the precinct or just mark it blank?  We don't have a SB # because this is coming up quite often.  We need a ruling on this on the updates or the additional helps pages as an answer please and thanks!  --ARobertson 20:29, 27 February 2012 (UTC)  We will ask.


I realize if 'Infant' is written/typed in the marital status we are suppose to tab to the next field, however, if I accidentally type anything in this field it automatically indexes one of the four marital status and it won't let me delete it.  Is there a way to leave this blank without typing in Ctrl+B? 


If a male has his father's last name as his middle name but a different last name, do we still submit both names in the surname field?


I realize if "stillborn" is written in the age field on a document we index the age as Ctrl+B, but if the stillborn isn't written at all on the document, do we still use Ctrl+B? 


If an infant has lived for even a little while and is marked on the record (ie, 30 minutes), do we index this field as 0?


When a document has three different registered numbers; one is handwritten in and consistant, one has five printed numbers but is not consistant, one has four printed numbers but IS consistant, which of these three should I use?
