Canada, Ontario—Tax Assessment Records, 1834–1899 [Part C] [M3Z2-CGN
In the heading, it says the record was made in 1898 for 1899. Would 1899 be the year I should use?
Also in some fields, there are multiple names listed. I am putting each name in a separate name field, but then they are repeated exactly the same on the next line. Should I put them down again or ignore them because they are not unique?
If the same person is repeated on subsequent lines or multiple times on the same page, should I put the name down each time or ignore it because it is not unique?
Project Instructions, What to Remember about this Project, bullet points 3,5 and 6.
"Index each unique name. Some names may be duplicated. When names are exact duplicates, meaning that all required fields are the same, index only the first instance of the name listed. Skip the other exact duplicates and then index the next unique name. Unique names include names with different middle initials and different name spellings or where the other required fields are different.
If multiple names were recorded on a single line, create a separate entry for each name.
Do not index information of the names of people listed in the “Remarks” column or in the “Owner” column. "
So yes we would index each name so long as it was not an owner or in the remarks column and was not already indexed as a unique name.
As far as the date goes, the General indexing Guide, Indexing dates, states: "If multiple dates were given for other events, type the most recent or latest date."
So yes we would index 1899 as the year.
You are doing great! Keep up the good work!0
