Q: If there is no residential address, do we key a business address if listed?
A: Sure, it places the person in a certain time at a certain place, any place will do.
A: A: I don't think that answer is correct, because Anna Fechter answered a question about keying business address as follows on the message board: Without understanding why there is a business address given I would say no, it is a residence location so the business address wouldn't be entered. --Katerimmer 19:18, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
Q: What do you do if there are two husbands listed?
A: Use the name of the current husband, if you can determine which one it is. Usually it will be the second one listed.
Q:If a spouse is shown followed by 'divorced' should we still key the spouse?
A: I would.
Q: On an Alumni list, do you key partial information from the top of the page or ignore it and begin with the first complete information? For example I have a spouse's name but not the alumus' name and a residence.
