In the last few days there have been several posts on the Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness Facebook Page about the word Miss. There are people that don’t recognize this word because in older documents it is written with an old style double S. You will commonly see this on marriage records and it gives you a clue that the woman was not previously married. Here are some examples from my files.
When I have a woman specifically referred to as Miss or Mrs. I record that name as an AKA.
