Why do Indexing creators need name prefixes rather than (Jr. or Sr) ???
Boston Tax Records for example. Jr's are A LOTT more common. Batch [M3BQ-2MS] has 2 names like that. The instructions tell us not to index duplicate names. We have to do it in this case.
We do not index suffixes, unless there is a field for it, so you will only index the first Edward T. Roche and James F. Cooper. I can only think of 3 or 4 projects that I have worked in the last 7 years where a suffix field was included in a project.0
Thank you. Would search engines ignore names that already have been entered that way? I felt the need to enter one name with a suffix just to be on the safe side. I entered the name and , Jr.0
The reviewer should correct your entry as erutherford has explained0
Indexing is the first step in getting records on to Family Search (and possibly on to other genealogy sites). The second step is another person will review your batch. The reviewer should catch the error (as Mary Ellen said) and delete the entries that contain the suffix, since they would be exact duplicates. Once your batch has been made searchable on FS (I don't pretend to know what happens after reviewing), someone who is researching Mr. Roche or Mr. Cooper could see, under Boston Tax Records, that their sons are listed right below them (it's a privacy thing with some city/states). It's then up to that researcher to determine what to do with that information.0
