100 (Main Entry - Personal Name)

Form of name

·        If a name has a record in the LC Authority File, use that heading.

·        When creating headings for a name with no authority record, use the fullest known form of name, even if this is not needed to differentiate the heading. 

·        Otherwise, follow RDA rules, especially:

·        Use active dates only to differentiate a heading.

·        Capitalize articles in names in languages other than English according to rules for that language.

Family names

·        Use the form of name appearing in the material, following RDA rules. 

·        If the name has a different spelling in the LCSH, use that heading in a 600 field.

Example:

100 3_ ‡a Griggs (Family)

245 10 ‡a Griggs family papers, ‡f 1775-1924.

600 30 ‡a Gregg family.
