Extra Keying Helps
When you find two names that are followed by a closed parenthetical ")" with a capital T after the parentheses of the first listed name, this designates that the two names are twins; this is not just a repeated name and the "T" is not a first initial.

Q: I have seen several instances in which there are two entries with the same information. In one there was no given name for the child, but the control numbers on the right were different. Could these be twins? and should I key in both records? In the other case everything was the same except the mothers given name is spelled differently and the control numbers on the far right are different. If I don't key in both of these records then which spelling should I use for the mother's name?
- A: If there is anything different except for the control number, you would key each entry. -- Wiedwoman 21:42, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
