Boston Missing Irish - who is self?

Posted: 9 Nov 2012 8:47AM GMT
Classification: Query
Most people seem to be keying all of the peolpe who are being sought as "Self". There is a question on Wiki about adverts for multiple people that has not been answered yet.
I have reviewed several examples where doing this will lead to misinformation.
Example: Information is being sought of John Flynn and his daughters Mary and Catherine..... Please write to his daughter Ellen ...
This was keyed as
John Flynn - Self
Mary Flynn - Self
Catherine Flynn - Self
Ellen Flynn - Daughter
implying that Ellen was Catherine's daughter, not her sister and losing all the other family connections.
If it was keyed as
John Flynn - Self
Mary Flynn - Daughter
Catherine Flynn - Daughter
Ellen Flynn - Daughter
all would be clear.
In the absence of any clear instructions, I believe this to be the best option.
