Q: How do I key a line when several children are written on one line. Example: Franz, Maria. Herbert.
A from Anna. I am not sure how often we will encounter this type of situation but I am hoping we will be updating the instructions soon adding in how these records should be keyed. The basic idea is that if there are additional names associated with the line you would add a record(s) with a line number of 1.1, 1.2, etc. to include those individuals. Then follow along with line 2 as you would normally. This would ensure that the information will follow along with the appropriate line number.
