Q: When keying in the "file name" on this collection they have all been [first name, last name Vs whatever Nation] this is followed by the case #. Whenever there is a difference in spelling (even if it's just one letter different) the case number is different. One of the file names on image 3 of 10 is "CALEB W HUBBARD V CHEROKEE NATION" (CASE # 257). On image 4 of 10 the file name is "HUBBARD, CALEB W V CHEROKEE NATION" (also CASE # 257) Since the "file name" is to be keyed as seen, should I key it in as seen in the image 4 of 10? It is the ony file name that has been last name, first name vs whatever nation.
- A: Key as seen. Some of the case names were reversed, but you should always key as seen. -- Wiedwoman 19:20, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
