Rules in Alphabetic Filing Part 5

In the previous post we have learned how to file compound and hyphenated surnames. In this post, we are going to learn how to file names with professional or personal titles.

Rule 5

Titles which are an intrinsic part of the name are considered as the first unit. Consider the following examples:

Princess Diana
Mother Theresa
King Arthur
Pastor Ed
Prince Harry

They are filed as:

King Arthur
Mother Theresa
Pastor Ed
Prince Harry
Princess Diana

But when a title of a person is added to a full name, it should be considered as last unit. Look at these examples:

Senator Panfilo Lacson
Congressman Art Dela Cruz
Attorney Jerry Villar
Doctor Hannah Villegas
Miss Lovely Pedroso

They are filed as:

Delacruz, Art Congressman
Lacson, Panfilo Senator
Pedroso, Lovely Miss
Villar, Jerry Attorney
Villegas, Hannah Doctor

Also, other titles appendages such as Sr., Jr., II., Mrs. Ph.D are also considered as the last name. Examples:

Teodoro, Albero II.
Candelaria, Jenny Mrs.
Lapuz, Ted PhD

Lastly, firm names beginning with a title should be indexed and filed as Title – (Company name). Examples:

Dr. Strange Computer Shop
Ms. Minchin’s Munchkins
Mr. Lova Laundry Shop

They are filed as:

Doctor Strange Computer Shop
Miss Minchin’s Munchkins
Mister Lova Laundry Shop
