I am doing tax records for US Mass 1822-1918 and under the given name column they have to DO. listed. What does this mean? Is it ditto referring to the given name above?
I'm quite sure that's a ditto mark. You can put a screen shot of the batch you're working on so that we can be certain.
I think it is ditto. Your thoughts?
Do is shorthand for ditto.
Here's what to index:
You will index the surname as Wilson or Willson and the first mention of Thomas.
In the future, please post the batch code, not a screenshot. This helps with answering questions. Your batch code is located at the top of your indexing screen and looks like [MQ9C-5H8], Batch ---> About Batch and Help ---> Share Batch.
