Should periods on initials be removed when reviewing a batch that doesn't give specific instruction?
After reading the link on prefixes and finding that I have made mistakes on punctuation I felt I should ask the question stated above
Yikes!!!! Thank you for posting this link. I learned that I am under a false impression. Because I'm new and started with many Virginia Marriage Registers, I thought it was normal to put periods after initials.
For that project the directions are:
(In this project, include all punctuation when typing names and place-names.)
I assumed that was standard unless stated otherwise. Most instructions don't give directions as to put punctuation in or not.
Upon reading the link above I learn:
- Type what is written, including hyphens and apostrophes, but leave out periods, commas, and semicolons.
Does this mean some review person is very unhappy with me as they remove all of the periods after initials??
