161779144 image 4. Is the certificate number 25382-A or 25382 (which is a certificate for an entirely different person)?

Is the 1/16 update addressing the county issue of birthplace when only a county is recorded on the death certificate? If the county is not to be entered into the city/town field, could you please state that? I have not been entering the county and there has been a lot of discussion about this. <fck:hr></fck:hr></fck:hr>

Slide#7 in project instructions explains that a woman's listed middle name MAY be her maiden name and the correct way to ascertain and to index this if this is the case.  However, I have been doing this and the arbitrators are NOT following this instruction and changing the individual's name back to read as if it were just the middle name.  Could you please make this an individual update on the first page so it is more prominent and likely to be followed by the arbitrators.  I have been corrected for this on EVERY batch I have submitted this way and I have already done more than 50 of them.  Thank you.
