'
Q: In Deed Records how do you handle "John Bass to Home Savings Bank?" Do you key the company in the given name field?
'
A: Only key John Bass as we are only keying individuals.

Q: How do you key John Bass's wife? Mrs John Bass?
A: If the record states "John Bass and his wife" only enter a record for John Bass. If the record states "John Bass and his wife, Mrs. John Bass" enter two records, one for John Bass and one for Mrs John Bass.

Q: In DEEDS I have come across one where land is divided up among a few people. Do we capture all the names just the first one(s) shown?

A: Key all names directly involved in the process on both ends of the deal. Do not key any indirectly involved people, like witnesses. -- Kateshort2 06:42, 18 August 2012 (UTC)


Q: In Deeds, I have "Heirs of John Tuttle" , the place, date, then list of heirs. Do I leave out John Tuttle and key all the heirs? Another Deed record, "Heirs of Josiah Allen to Ralph Allen". Do I key "heirs of" in suffix field?

A: I am not sure I understand - it would help to see the image. Annafechter 06:03, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

Q: For Guardianship records, if the text starts out "Guardianship of Children of John Smith of Plymouth MA <Plymouth Co. PR #20001>" and later includes the names of the children, should the deceased parent's residence location (Plymouth, MA, in this case) be used for the children, or should Residence Location be left blank?
A: Yes, in this example (and others like it) key the location for the children as Plymouth.

Q: Is it possible for a single paragraph in the image to be keyed as multiple records of different Event Types, e.g. if a "Will" record (key only the primary person) happens to mention the guardianship of the children, should the children also be keyed as Guardianship records (key only the named children)?
A: Yes, enter both events.

Q: In Deed Records that say grantor to grantee.. land in  location bought of or from 3rd person, should the 3rd person also be entered, although the 3rd person was not a part of this transaction?
