The surname of the wife of the deceased is not written, but she signed her husband's death certificate with the surname of her husband. Should I enter that as her surname, or leave the field blank?
Hello @Ciavardini, Margaret just noticed your post, sorry for the delay, you may have submitted the batch for indexing.
But for future refence the following is an extract from a Knowledge Article.

Enter the surname as you see it printed on the historical document that you are indexing. ( If no surname enter Blank. When the record is viewed by the person viewing it he/she will see the information displayed on the record.)
Thank you for the invaluable work that you are doing for the FamilySearch Tree.
Kind Regards, Peter A Basford.
The general guidelines state:
• Names may have been written in more than 1 place in a document. Type the most complete version of the name in the indexing field.
