How do I index place names when a former name is included
I have searched for this answer with no luck, and the Indexing and Reviewing instructions don't seem to address this specific circumstance. I have come across several forms that list a country's former designation after the "current" one. I have attached a batch as an example. The one I see the most, however, is "Poland, formerly Russia".
Do I include Russia as part of the place name, perhaps after a comma or in parenthesis? I am figuring that it was included in their document because the former country was the proper name when the person was born, so it seems logical to include it, but I'm not certain.
