Do I make an entry for EVERY line- even section headers (similar to Yellow Pages section)?
I'm indexing "US—City and Business Directories, 1749–1990 [Part C][M3HS-SVJ]." The directory in this image is like Yellow Pages, with a category of service (ex: "Batteries - Electric.") and then listings of people/ businesses under each.
I have started wondering if I should be making an entry for EVERY line on this page image, including the service category headers/ titles and just marking these service category titles as BLANK entries in order to keep the entries I'm making aligned with the lines of text on the page (although this seems unlikely to me), or do I skip these types of lines altogether and only enter the listings themselves?
For example. on this image I'd go from entry for "ZELLE, CHARLES D" to "KLEIN, JOHN M" as the very next entry?
I suppose the question really gets at if I should be trying to have my entries match line for line of text, or whether the entries are adjusted in a later part of the index process so that when a user looks up "John M Klein," for example, the text "John M Klein" on this page will be highlighted, rather than a line somewhere above it because I didn't acknowledge a text line that should be marked as blank.
Thanks for clarification- I don't want to be the one who causes a record to come up wonky for someone as I know how frustrating wonky record entries can be!! Nor do I want to cause extra work for someone later down the stream in this process.
