US, Wisconsin—Pre-1907 Death Records, 1860–1907
In the mother of deceased field, the pop up instruction says "Index names in the maiden name field only if the record specifically refers to them as maiden or birth names."
Last names of the mother on many of the records appear to be maiden names but the record does not indicate that specifically. Do I assume them to be maiden names when different from the fathers surname? Or do I mark the field blank?
