How would the first entry be indexed? Curtis as surname and Blake as given? Or are both surnames to be indexed on separate lines. This makes a difference to the entire record.
Thanks for your input.
Thank you for providing the batch code.
Curtis would be the surname for all those first name starting with Blake until you see a new surname.
This document contains implied dittoes, we would index the names as if there were actually ditto marks below the surname.
General Indexing Guidelines, Ditto Marks, Bullet Point #3, indicates that we are able to use contextual information to determine if the information is dittoed.
Hope we have answered your question.
The record was Curtis & Blake, not Curtis, Blake. The previous image all had the surname Curtis. The instructions say do not index names of companies or trusts. But, I suppose it doesn't hurt to over-index.
If I were reviewing this, I would simply delete the first entry based on this project instruction:
Index all names except those listed in the "Owner" or "Remarks" columns, or names of companies or trusts.
This looks like the name of a company.
