Thank You Larry and Janey. I have gone back and forth on that. I think you're right in making an inconspicuous mark off to the side. Enough for them to see but not enough to obscure the document.

In complicated documents where the information isn't obvious I sometimes use very small triangular markers that fit to the page without leaving any mark (very small, thin 'clip' style things), which point right to the area of interest.

NEVER, NEVER highlight anything on a
 document.  A highlighted area does not photo copy well and is generally unacceptable in applications for organizations like the Daughters of the American Revolution, which now scans such documents.

So that the client can easily spot an ancestor's name on a record, I put a small checkmark in the margin of the document next to the line where the name appears.  I usually use red ink so that it really stands out but does not obscure the information.
