|Spouses on Index Cards
Because of explanatory information included with this collection (see outlined information in the image above), for index cards you can generally assume that the first-listed person and second-listed person are husband and wife, unless evidence on the card indicates otherwise.
For the sample image above, the fields would be indexed as follows:
- Surname: Legg
- Given Names: Rob
- Death Year: <Blank> (Press Ctrl+B.)
- Birth Year: (Press Tab.)
- Marriage Year: (Press Tab.)
- Spouse's Surname: Gibson
- Spouse's Given Names: Jane
A second record would be created for Peter Gibson, with 1920 indexed in the Death Year field.
