I started the military registers. 1 Surname 2.Given name & 4. Military date. However instructions say do not input rank. So what am I putting in for suffix? There are only four fields am I correct. Wanted to get startedand already in a muddle.Thanks

The suffix field will be for things like Jr and Sr and perhaps an occasional Esq or III..

Rank would not normally be keyed as a suffix anyway - a suffix will be something that comes after the name, such as jr or sr.

The fields are Surname, Given Name, Suffix, Military Date (split into day, month, year), Birth Date (split into day, month, year) and Birth Place.

Some names will have a suffix such as Jr, II, III, 3d etc. Key as seen.
A rank (if it was being keyed) would be a prefix.

Kerrie.
