Q: I have a record starting with "Heirs of John ALDEN to John JONES, Power of Attorney." I'm keying the record as "Not Stated" and I feel that John JONES should be keyed as well as John ALDEN. There is no mention of any other record types in the paragraph. Would this be correct?
Q: On Deed Records only principal people are keyed so I'm assuming witnesses, signers, daughters of, sons of, fathers of, land owners and land boundaries of so and so aren't. Correct?
