Indexing document that contains both the maiden and married name of a woman
Hi all, I am indexing voter registration documents where the maiden and married name is quoted. In these cases I have been adding 2 entries with identical info except the different surname - my logic being that enables accurate searching on both maiden and married names in future. Is this the correct way to index it? This involves duplication of effort, which is why I am asking.
Or do I just list her with both 2 surnames on the 1 line? Which name first?
If I just need to add the 2 names on 1 line that is quicker especially when considering that there is also the husbands info to index on same document. However if first method the longer way is right then will keep doing that.
Thanks in advance for your help, and hope you have an awesome day!
