Principal Names Only

  • Index only the principal name on the record. Index all other fields that pertain to the principal.
  • Do not index the names or information of spouses, children, or any other relatives that are typed or written below the principal's information. These names, if the individuals were buried in the cemetery, will have separate forms or cards.

Sample Images

    1. In the menu bar, click View.
    2. Click Show Highlights. If Show Highlights is turned on, that option will have a check mark next to it.
  • The highlights may not line up with the image. To adjust the highlights to fit the image:

    2. Click Adjust Highlights.
  • Move the cursor over the image, and all highlights will appear.
  • To adjust the highlights, click on and drag a corner of the red outline to the proper location, or click on and drag an indexing field to the proper location.
