Indexing the name of a person and next to the name there is a name of a company the person works for. Do I index that name?
We would index the name or names of the individuals for the Company. In other words, if the name of the company they work for is J. B. Smith and Co., we would make an entry for J B Smith as an individual.
You can find this in the Project Instructions under What to Remember about This Project, the fifth bullet point down:
Mary Anne, do you have a batch number that we can look at? In the project instructions there is a reference to indexing company names if the Company name has a person's name as a part of the company name. If you can give us a batch number we can look at it and confirm for you.
City and Business Directories 1749-1990 part C M3W1-94R look at Charles C Smith and maybe Ferdinand C Smith for examples of what I'm asking. Thanks
Can you please confirm the batch number again? When we plug in M3W1-94R we get US, Georgia—Tax Digests, 1787–1900 [Part B] [M3W1-94R] instead of the City and Business Directory project that you mentioned.
