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. &lt;fck:hr&gt;&lt;/fck:hr&gt;&lt;/fck:hr&gt;
 
 
 
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.&nbsp; 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.&nbsp; 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.&nbsp; I have been corrected for this on EVERY batch I have submitted this way and I have already done more than 50 of them.&nbsp; Thank you.

Why are the arbitrators not following the presentation slide re: maiden and surnames?????   "A woman's middle name may be her maiden name. Determine this by comparing it with her father's surname. Index both the maiden name and the surname in the SURNAME FIELD."  EVERY time I do this it is marked wrong.  Can't something be done about this??? I just had an arbitrator knock off 20 points (OUCH) because of this.  I have a 98% arbritration results and that 20 points is really going to mess that up and I'm only following your directions. I'm just frustrated.  HELP!    Thanks - Thank you for your desire to correctly index the records by following the instructions.
