I'm doing Batch #1. Have an image with Report of Death stamped 23527. Next image is the Death Certificate of the same person, stamped 23523, but that is crossed out and #23527 (same as RofD) is strongly handwritten. Do I use the stamped or handwritten number in this case? Thanks. <br>RE certificate numbers: I have a batch where 5 digit stamped certificate numbers are crossed out with a line thru them. Beneath that is a 4 digit stamped certificate number. Which one should I use?

Alot of discussion about this recently and we need a ruling...
 
 
 
Death Town / City Field
 
 
 
Original Town / city name is crossed out. &nbsp;Precinct is written in. &nbsp;We know not to index the precinct. &nbsp;Do we index the original town / city name since we dont index the precinct or just mark it blank? &nbsp;We don't have a SB # because this is coming up quite often. &nbsp;We need a ruling on this on the updates or the additional helps pages as an answer please and thanks! &nbsp;--[[User:Aprilrobertson|ARobertson]] 20:29, 27 February 2012 (UTC)&nbsp; '''We will ask.'''
 
 
 
&lt;fck:hr&gt; On the Project Updates tab it says: "Two Stamped Certificate Numbers (Feb 15) - A certificate has two stamped numbers on the upper right hand corner. Use the higher number."&nbsp; Can you clarify what you mean by higher number?&nbsp;&nbsp;Is it the one located furthestmost to the top of the image?&nbsp;Or is it the larger (numerically) of the two numbers?&nbsp; '''The larger numerically.'''

I realize if 'Infant' is written/typed in the marital status we are&nbsp;suppose&nbsp;to&nbsp;tab to the next field, however, if I accidentally type&nbsp;anything in this field it automatically&nbsp;indexes one of the four marital status and&nbsp;it won't let me delete it.&nbsp; 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?&nbsp;'''For this and the following two questions may we have a share please?'''
 
 
 
<br>
 
 
 
I realize&nbsp;if "stillborn" is written in the age field on&nbsp;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?&nbsp; <br>
 
 
 
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?
 
 
 
<br>&lt;/fck:hr&gt;
