In US, Wisconsin—Death Records, 1959–1978 How do I mark the country of residence and birth?
I have been reviewing Wisconsin death records, and almost every one of the indexed records has both a state and country listed for birth and residence. The field help for birth location clearly states that if a state is listed, then mark the country as "blank". It also says not to assume the country of residence based on the city and state. Looking at the examples also shows not to do those things. I realize that the' instructions on the actual document say to list the state if they were born in the USA, so this may be where the confusion lies.
Please clarify this for me, as I am starting to doubt my ability to read directions.
