What is the most common way to index, or build a tree with Hispanic surnames?
The best way to index Spanish names if by following the Project Instructions and Field help on names and surnames.
To build a tree with spanish names: Interesting, because the creator of the tree hopefully is Spanish and knows how his or her names are placed, on the other hand as per adding ancestors hopefully the sources and their link to their index card will indicate the order of the names pending the indexing and review were done well.
In some spanish countries, the women do not carry the husband surnames just their parents' surnames.
Hope I did not overwelm you but it is how it should be indexed. Cheers.
Indexing and "building a family tree" - are usually considered two different activities.
Please clarify more about why you used the term "indexing" as it relates to "building a family tree"
I assume you might mean a "listing of names" included in your family tree.
Note that the word "Indexing" in Familysearch usually has a different connotation
The FamilyTree is a collaborative single database - that we all work on to create a single "family tree database"
some of you may have hispanic names - others from other countries - - but we all work in a single database.
how have you progressed in building your family tree so far?
OR are you using a locally installed database program like Roots Magic etc.
OR simply trying to keep track of paper records for all of your ancestors?
