Extra Keying Helps
ob = death / died
aetat = age, so if it says something like "ob 1635 aetat 80" this would mean he died in 1635, age at death 80. --Katerimmer 18:00, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Q. Should the initials after the name be entered, i.e. S.T.D., S.T.B, D.D.? I am assuming they should not, since they appear to be degrees and those are not usually included in the suffix.
Q. Not really sure where to post this, but when it says something like "James Pitcairn, 20th July 1759, vice Robert Gilbert resigned", this does not mean that Robert Gilbert "served in a vice position", it means that James Pitcairn was appointed to replace Robert Gilbert. I am assuming that the instruction about not keying the names of people who "served in vice positions" does mean not to key these "vice" names. N.B. I posted this in the Suggestions section as it was not a question, but somebody has moved it into the Questions section and labelled it with a Q --Katerimmer 17:55, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
Q: please could the question about Initials after the name be answered. Most of the sets I am viewing contain these initials, some are recognized in the suffix box i.e. DD others like STD are not. When reviewing them I remove them, I hope that is correct.
Q: Many of the surnames particularly the early ones have De in front I have always put it in as part of the name, but the batch I am currently reviewing leaves it out. I am adding it, I hope that is correct.
The above 2 issues are occurring in most of the reviews I do and I would appreciate advice. pclesle
