Marriage Indexing: No "nee" Please!

If John Brown's" wife is listed as Jane Brown nee Miller, that means her maiden name was Jane Miller and that is what should be indexed for the mother's maiden name. In no instance should the word "nee" be included as part of a woman's name -- even if that is what the clerk wrote on the document! Her married name is Jane Brown and her maiden name is Jane Miller.
