Q: My Query is about the Business Name, as that shown in the sample is only an address and not a name. Is this what should be keyed and if so I think the title and help should be changed.

A: The image shown is incorrect. Only key a business name. I've sent an email to Anna to see if we can get that image corrected.

Q: If the name blank is left empty on a bond, should I key the first signature as the primary name record?

A: I would key both signatures as records. --Wiedwoman 06:10, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

I noticed that the index pages often have the names written more clearly than the licenses do. I don't know if the reviewers see the images in sequential order (us keyers get them non-sequentially) but if I could, I'd go find the index page for a batch, make a copy of the image, and use that as a key for the license pages following it. ~Ianthe
