Pettus Book, Vol. II Status (080112)

In July, I finished checking all entries in the index. Now I am reviewing the text to make sure all entries that should be in the index are in fact there. I should have that task completed in about two weeks. The next task will be to make sure that all entries are in proper alphabetical order. This can be tricky when several persons have the same name. I am using qualifiers to distinguish one from another, but the goal is to choose the most effective qualifiers. Finally I will sometimes use multiple entries for the same subject, as with maiden names and married names. So, I still have quite a bit of work to do to finish the index.
