How to index Chinese names from English records
Resolution

Many different English records contain Chinese names. Some Chinese names were recorded with two names; others may have three or more. Unless the document is one which labels each part of the name separately, you do not need to try to determine which name is the surname and which is the given name, or separate the names into the surname and given name fields. Instead, keep each name together as a unit, and type the unit in the Name: Given Name field. Keep each name in the same order as it was written on the image.
