Purpose of Indexing - Make it more searchable by the users
A lot of thought goes on as we index as to what the intent was, what the record is, etc. All interesting stuff, but I think we need to keep the focus on how to make the names searchable for the user. In that regard, I would like to see an form that keeps these group of names together as that may help the researcher a great deal. They may know the name Esther, and maybe Felix and Napolean, which would help them do a search using all those names, and find this record. Otherwise, the names, as listed separately are rather cumbersome for a researcher, as it would be if individual names were listed on a census record rather than households.
