Would I index this kind of name? US—City and Business Directories, 1749–1990 [Part B] [MSP6-73Q]
Hello, I am working on US—City and Business Directories, 1749–1990 [Part B][MSP6-73Q].
Would I index a name such as "Germain Fruit Co"? Could Germain be the last name of someone? The address is what follows the name of course, but I can't tell if Germain is just some other name or the last name of someone. What if I can't tell? What is the best practice to use then?
One more example: "Naud's Warehouse" (followed by address) is one I can't figure out. Could "Naud" be the last name of someone, and would I index it as "Naud" or "Naud's?"
This would be a BIG help if someone can help this fellow out. Thanks!!!
