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? Select EDIT (located between FILE and VIEW) and then select CLEAR FIELD.
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? For this and the following two questions may we have a share please?
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?
