US Military Registers - to mac or not to mac

Last one of the day ...These records are in all caps: MCLAUGHLIN, MCCORD, MacVAY, etc. Key it Mclaughlin or McLaughlin, Macvay or MacVay? Do you ever cap the letter after mc or mac?

I tend to key them the way I see them in other places. For example, McDonald, MacVay, etc. I find myself correcting them but it doesn't count against the keyer as far as I know. I'd capitalize them if you normally see them that way. Some names can be either way, however. I guess it's a personal choice.
