Are there any circumstances under which wording could or should be different?
I'm going to volunteer for a FamilySearch indexing project but in the meantime - I'm working on an indexing project for another company. They've just updated volunteers on how they'd like us to use THEIR chosen adjectives in place of the adjectives on the pages to be indexed - historical records. Is this acceptable? I always thought the point of indexing is to preserve records word for word - exactly as it appears.
