Feedback for Project Instruction on Field Help: Child's Surname
I'm in project/batch: Ireland, Cork—Church Records, 1740–1913[MSP2-6HC]
I differ in the transcription for the Field Help - the Instruction says the example should be indexed: Marlin
I disagree, it should be: Martin - the t has a very small cross and may be faded. I can find other examples on the page with the same/similar issue.
Question on the same field - Child's Surname: The Project Instructions seem to be fairly explicit but I don't know if I am following them to the letter at the expense of a better index. The instructions are as shown in the following image - 'don't guess the surname from others...':
It seems there is confusion on whether this means if the document does not explicitly have the surname after the child's name then the field should be entered as <BLANK> OR whether the father's surname is listed that should be included as the child's surname? While I can see both as following the instruction - the example shows an explicitly surnamed child followed apparently by a couple who are not his parents? So the example image is confusing for this Field Help. I don't know what the PP in the example means but typically in my experience the parents are listed after the child - but why would they have a different surname then? I don't find the meaning of PP on the Latin Word list found in the wiki. SS I thought indicated the sponsoring/godparents - so it makes sense their surname would be different. The whole page in this example document has children with differing surname than the PP following - a confusing example image to give for representative of a baptism record.
