Indexing a "Jr"
When indexing large batches (City Directory), if (2) exact names come up but one is a Jr (Junior)
I have seen some people skip the Junior name as a duplicate,
I have seen some put Jr after the first name, or after the Last name, and some have put Jr in the Prefix box.
Which is correct?
**I have looked but have not seen instructions on this, and yet it comes up all the time.

We do not index suffixes in this project, so Jr and Sr are ignored. They are not to be indexed in the Prefix or the Surname Fields. Thus, only one name is indexed since the other would be a duplicate.2
Note: when I tried reading various directions I didn't see this info listed and yet it is so frequent.0
