I still have 2 questions. Are we keying Kind or not in the Beruf column? When wym is followed by a date and a place name in the Bemerkungen column do we key this as deportation as instructed? It looks like a move to another address and not a deportation. Patricia 1/26/13
The image I am keying does not have a "Madechenname oder Name des Mannes" column, however I believe the maiden name is included in the "Name" column as there are often females with two values in this field separated by "geb." (eg, 'Srafin geb. Rotkel') Can someone please provide guidance on how these should be keyed? Rebekah 1/28/13
