How to tell if a name is a surname or given name?
How to tell if a name is a surname or given name? I got to number 7 in a bacth for birth records and the name for the father is just Edwin. Perhaps the last name is mentioned. I know last names are usually how people are identified. And it has been that way for a while. That is why I am asking. (Just trying to make sure I do all this indexing, right).
