General Indexing Instructions



Lookup Lists:

  • A lookup list is a collection of common names, places, etc., that can be used to help decipher a specific field. All fields that have a corresponding lookup list will have a down arrow at the right side of the column.
    1. Click the down arrow.
    2. Select Lookup... for the appropriate list for that field to appear.
  • The lookup lists are not comprehensive. If the clerk wrote something that is not in the list, type what was written on the document.

Corrected or Crossed-Out Information:

  • When information is crossed out and then replaced, type the new data into the appropriate fields.
  • When the information is crossed out, not replaced, and can be read, type the crossed-out information.
  • When the information is crossed out, not replaced, and cannot be read, mark the field unreadable by pressing Ctrl+U.
  • When every entry on a record cannot be read, mark the entire record unreadable by pressing Ctrl+Shift+U.

Unknown: 

  • If a <Required> field contains a descriptive word, such as "unknown" or "don’t know," press Ctrl+B to mark the field as blank.
  • If a field that is not required contains a descriptive word, such as "unknown" or "don’t know," press Tab to skip this field.  

Unnecessary Punctuation:

  • Do not type periods, commas, parentheses or semicolons after initials, abbreviations, or between multiple levels of localities for any of the fields.

Red Wavy Line:

  • The red wavy line or colored background does not mean that you made a mistake. It appears because the word you typed is not in the lookup list. This is okay.
