Dear all,

how do you deal with indexes for information about nationality of persons. I am working at an archive of a Tracing Service that contains for instance s lot of original documents from the Nazi concentration camps etc. and data about persons are an important issue in the describing process. Because I didn't find an index type for nationalities in the EAD tag library I decided to put the data in as <odd type="nationality">. Do you have any more convenient suggestions?

Best regards,

Karsten Kuehnel
