Re: South Africa, Natal—Vital Records, 1868–1976 [Part F] [M3V8-DWH]
Two questions and one suggestion: Do the Project Instructions give us (the indexer/reviewer) authority to ignore "Do not assume from the surname of others mentioned in the document" by changing what was written as given names or surnames in order to match the father's surname with the child's? Also as indexer and reviewer, I have always followed the rule, "index what you see," but in this case, are we allowed to use our own judgment? I can see why both the indexer and the reviewer can be correct.
The project instructions always offer the most perfect examples. Sometimes an additional example, an outlier, like this batch would be helpful. Also, when selecting "purple question mark," the example of the father's given name (Alek), this seems to be more fitted to the child's given name; the father's given name was evident.
I have spent a lot of time deliberating over this batch and hoping you can tell me what I am missing here.
