Crossed Out Names - Explicit Instructions...
I'm indexing the MA Tax records, but I did not find any explicit instructions whether names that are crossed out need to be indexed. I read through the Project Instructions and did not find any.

All of the projects I've worked on quote those guidelines somewhere in some form, but I cannot find the whole thing in one place. Here's what they say about crossed out info:
Basically, if you can read the crossed-out names, then yes, you should index them.0
