My first time seeing this (newbie indexer :) ) On this naturalization record, it was recorded with the spouse attached, but they are deceased. Do we add the information or mark it blank?
Thank you for your help!
Thanks for including the share batch code.
Yes, you index the spouse's given name: Enno. It doesn't matter that he died before Maria completed this form.
You have a typo on the surname in record one. There's a missing o. It should be "Jacobowitz Or Jacovowicz".
I just love the way some of these records have name variations. That's valuable information for researchers. Many immigrants changed their names as part of the naturalization process.
That is an interesting catch on the Field Help. Both of the examples show that we use United States of America. I think they are just trying to make the point that if United States of America isn't somewhere on the document, then you only expand the abbreviation US to United States.
Thank you for the reply!
Just for clarification - edited: clarification received.
Thanks for catching the typo. Note to self - stop indexing before you're too tired ;)
It really is great information with the name variations. Though I've come across some name variations that really don't make sense - like a whole new name variation :)
