Many indexers are missing the Event Year sometimes found in the far right column.

Many dates are single entries such as 1824.  However, when there is a date range, such as 1823-1824 or 1823 & 1824, indexers are not following the Basic Indexing Guidelines which instruct to use the first date in the range written.

The title fields:  If the titles say Jr, we should type Jr and not expand per field helps.

A decision is need on the title of "Heirs Of".  Many are typing Heirs and many are entering Heirs Of.
