Rules in Alphabetic Filing Part 4

By | October 3, 2017

This is the fourth post in the Alphabetic Filing series. In this post, we are going to learn how to file those hyphenated and compound names.

Rule 4

Hypenated and compound last names are treated as one word. Ignore the hypen (-) and file the two words as one unit. Consider the following examples:

Luna F. Ag-non
Mara S. Dela Vega
Jonna P. Delos Reyes
Lando D. San Pedro

They are filed as:

Agnon, Luna F.
Delavega, Mara S.
Delosreyes, Jonna P.
