In a two-name entry, the word “and” is written out (John and Mary Smith, not John & Mary Smith)

Titles are not used. No Mr. or Mrs., M.D., Esq., Rev., General, etc. — Jr., Sr., III, etc. can be used.

English language alphabet letters only are used, with no accent marks.

Parentheses or quotation marks are not used. John (Jack) Smith or John “Jack” Smith will be entered as John Jack Smith.

When honoring a female member of your family, you might consider listing her first name, maiden name and then her married name.

When honoring a family name, we recommend using a first and last name (e.g., The John Smith Family.) Please note that “The” and “Family” are always used in such an entry.

Specify upper and lower case letters and spacing where necessary (e.g., von Wyck, DiBello).

Country of Origin does not appear on the Wall. It is in the computer data bank and is shown on the Certificate of Registration.
