US, Massachusetts—Boston Tax Records, 1822–1918 [Part N][M3GS-HT2]
I know we are not supposed to duplicate names if they are underneath each other BUT should I index a name if there are other names between the identical names?
Only index the name 1 time. So if the name is mentioned 5 times in the batch, just index once.
- 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 and then index the next unique name. When the middle initials or the given names or surnames are spelled differently, please index these unique names.
Because you are just indexing the name and the year for all of the records on this document it's only necessary to index once.0
