Q: Under the residence heading, how do I key an entry of "Poorhouse Goodhue"? Do I ignore the word poorhouse and only key Goodhue?
- A: I would key as Goodhue. -- Wiedwoman 23:10, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
Q: Another residence question. The only residence entry is "alms house." Do I put nothing at all for the residence?
- A: I would leave residence blank. -- Wiedwoman 23:31, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
Q: I'm looking at pages from the University of Minnesota Hospital for Crippled and Deformed Children, and there isn't a place on the document to list birth place, but there is a field for nationality. Should I key birth place from nationality?
