Indexing Tax Records: What to do with similar names but also indicate as different people.
According to the Indexing Project Instruction for "What to Remember About this Project" the following instruction is given:
"Index each unique name. Some names may be duplicated. When names are exact duplicates, index only the first instance of the name listed. Skip the other exact duplicates"
Sometimes duplicate names are shown in a batch in two ways:
1) In succession
2) in multiple times, but not in succession (i.e. "Henry")
I am reviewing this batch and see that "John" is entered once, but "Henry" is entered twice.
Please advise. Thank you, Carol Tano
