Q: Do I include, "alias" or "otherwise know as", surnames?
- A: No, as there are no fields for alias names. -- Wiedwoman 16:00, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
Q1: Poor Law Union or Parish Name. I understand that we should expect to key records from the Bethnal Green Poor Law Union. So when we see B.G. at the bottom of the page do we key B G (with the space, without the periods) or do we key Bethnal Green?
A1: - according to Lizzie who has replied to the question in New projects board - yes we key Bethnal Green where we see B.G. as the originating union
Q2: Poor Law Union or Parish Name. How should the parish/union be keyed in this example - ie key as seen, with brackets? or ignore the brackets? It says St George (H Square)
