With regard to marital status, surely it is correct to record a marital status of Single when the person's is recorded as Miss xyz?  I have recently had a few of my records adjudicated and had the S removed - It seems like valid information is being lost in this process if the rule is to not record a Miss as a single woman, if this is the rule.  I can find no guidance in the indexing instructions.

I have an image in NZ Shipping that has both Passengers & Crew on it.

Will it be Okay just to state Yes on names that are Crew..??

Perhaps this should be added to the Project Update Page

Many Thanks

Marital Status

With regard to marital status, surely it is correct to record a marital status of Single when the person's is recorded as Miss xyz?  I have recently had a few of my records adjudicated and had the S removed - It seems like valid information is being lost in this process if the rule is to not record a Miss as a single woman, if this is the rule.  I can find no guidance in the indexing instructions.


Dictionary definition: 

Miss:

1) Used as a courtesy title before the surmame or full name of a girl or single woman.

2) A young unmarried woman


Please review and make clear on your indexing instructions how you would like these cases treated.
