Project Revisions and Reminders

Possessive Name Suffixes:

  • Do not index possessive name suffixes, such as -in, -en, -s, or –ens, on given names and surnames. Index only the root form of the name.

  • For example, if the entry reads “Sohn der Katharina Müllerin,“ index the name “Müllerin” as Müller; or if the entry reads “Sohn des Martin Schmidts,” index the name “Schmidts” as Schmidt.
