Questions and Answers
2/17/14 I have a card with the header "Deeds" with 3 lines below it, each one referring to different people (2 couples, one individual). Do I ignore these names (i.e. Cover Page) or consider it kind of like a list and key each as own record (I.e. Biography Card)? I HATE ignoring names ~lrs~

If a woman was married twice and her married names are given, how would you enter this info? For example: Black, Mrs. Mary Jane Ball (Bowman) -- then it shows her first husband's surname was Bowman and her second husband's name was Black. Also, would you enter her given as Mary Jane, with a surname of Ball?
