Alphabetic Listings and repeated names

Hi,

Downloaded a set with the header Auckland Alphabetical Directory. It is an alphabetical list with Names and occupation as usual but then street address and town listed for every name. Town e.g's are Hmltn, Auc, Pokeno, Gisb, Howick, Whang Rural etc.

Do I just use one section headed Auckland (as I suspect) or a new section for each new town mentioned (would be at least a couple of hundred sections changing back and forward between towns).

Also there are many repeated names, obviously different people with differing occupations and different addresses (e.g. 5 different Wm Blake). Do I list all the names (in this case 5 lines of Wm Blake) or just one line and skip the repeats even though they are different people.


Many thanks
