When dittos (", Do., etc.) appear, the field should be copied down from the value written in the record above.

What Names Should I Key? Every name that appears on the 'Register' form type in the column labeled "Name", "Nazwisko", "Letzter Wohnungsinhaber", or something similar, should be keyed. Names will most often appear in surname, given format.
