What’s in a name? Seemingly simple, in reality, a name can be a thorn in the side of indexers. To invert or not to invert?—that is just one question. Other times, you cannot tell what the dickens the name is. The American Society for Indexing is excited to bring together four experts who will share their knowledge about indexing names. No longer will you be false to any person’s name.
The American Society for Indexing (ASI) Zoom event will encompass four presentations:
- Challenges in Indexing Names – Noeline Bridge
- Issues in Indexing Russian Names – Sergey Lobachev
- The Mystery of Spanish Personal Names, a Look at Gender and Culture – Francine Cronshaw
- Genealogical Indexing: The Name’s the Thing! – Carolyn Weaver
Altogether there will be 3 hours of programming plus 30 minutes of break. Each session will be followed by a 10-minute break or networking time. The formal sessions will be recorded and recordings will be available for one year following the event for those who register. Sister association members may use coupon code SWEETROSE to register at the member rate.
