Q: If an image contains a single stone with only a birth year, is this classified as Image with no data or cover page? It is on a double stone, with husband and wife: 2 dates for one person and one date on top for the other, so I'm pretty sure it's a dob. Are we not keying this info for privacy reasons? If so, it shouldn't be a cover page, either. Thanks.
A: Generally if there is only one date on the stone, it will be the death date. If you are positive that it is a birth date (states birth on stone) classify as a cover page. -- Wiedwoman 01:22, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
- When you encounter a tombstone where there are two names given (such as a married couple) and one of the individuals only has one date engraved, this is generally the birth date. In such cases as these, the individual with only a birth date is presumed still living and should not be keyed. - So we would still key the one person. If it was only one person, it would be a cover page. The image with no data info says there shouldn't be any of these. -- Wiedwoman 01:45, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
Q: Are maiden names being keyed? If so, are they placed in the surname field with married name?
