I'm indexing a record batch, and the surname appears like Lee (a.k.a Fisher), so ¿how I should index it?
Edit: I think I found my answer, thx!

If you want to share the batch so Community can view it to help answer any question you might have - you can use Help menu> Share batch and copy the batch code and paste it into your question. The same code appears at the top of the indexing app window when you open the batch [batch name - [batch code]]
I hope this helps.
Hi Bruce. You would index the Surname as Lee Or Fisher. a.k.a means “also known as” and is covered under Alias Names. From the General Indexing Guidelines section of your Project Instructions you should find something like the following:
If alias names were included on a document, or if an individual's name was listed with various spellings on the document, include all variants, separating each with the word Or. For example, if a name was written as "Georgios (George), George Broski, George Browzowski, or George Brzozowski," index the name fields as follows:
