I am indexing George tax digests. The instructions are not clear to me as to whether names of employers should be listed. See Image Name008356083_00198
Hi Richard. Yes, I think that you should index individuals who are employers for your type of batch (military tax forms), and more broadly, for any batch from this Project. See below.
I don’t work on this Project, and we may have been instructed NOT to index employers in other Tax Record Projects (I don’t recall for sure). But look at the two bulleted citations below from the “What To Remember About This Project” section of the Project Instructions for THIS Project.
The first bullet instructs us TO index employers in military tax forms, which your batch has. So that settles the question for your type of batch. But I think we can make a broader conclusion.
In the second bullet we’re instructed not to index companies, businesses, etc. But that same citation is silent about about not indexing individuals who happen to be employers.
So I believe that any individual who happens to be an employer should be indexed, even in non-military batches..
Yes, John and Richard, these names of employers should also be indexed:
In the Project Instructions, What to Remember about This Project, Bullet Point #5 you will find: "If multiple names were recorded on a single line, or in multiple columns, create a separate entry for each name. Create separate entries for employers and freedmen on military tax forms.
