Minnesota State School and Hospital Records

I just started keying this project and need a second opinion.

The project direction for the Resident City and Resident County says: Key the residence county from the residence information portion of the record as seen on the image using the dictionary provided to assist you.

Am I correct in interpreting this to mean that when a city or county name is misspelled in the record, I should choose the spelling that appears in the drop down list? For instance, if Stearns County is spelled Sterns in the record, do I choose Stearns from the dropdown?

Also, if the name of the city is abbreviated, ie, Mpls, do I key as seen, or assume that the city is Minneapolis and select that from the dropdown?

Thank you for your help.

Key cities and counties as seen, even if they are spelled wrong. The drop-down list are only a tool to help you in the spelling.
