Questions and Answers
If you have a keying question that is not answered on the project page or in any of the information above, click “EDIT” and ask it here. (If you click on Rich Editor you won't have to worry about formatting your entry.) Then click “WATCH” at the top right on this page and you will be notified via email when an update has been made.
Q: Do we key names in advertisements? For example, the Proprietor's name? Or when a proper name is part of the name of a business? For example, The Geo. Brehm Co.
Q: Should we key the Artist who drew the cartoons? In yearbooks, quite often these are created by students.
Q: the pages I'm working on are for various clubs and groups - at the top of the page is a photo with a caption below of their surnames, then below that is a list of officers with complete names. Do I key in the surnames of those in the photo who are NOT officers or just those for whom there are full names?
Q: Should we enter nicknames (which appear in quotations) as the Given name if none other provided? For example, "Ellie" Woods.
