NO; That statement by BG actually means to transcribe only the information on the stone. You should transcribe using Upper / lower case as is usual for names. Do not use all caps.
Dont' feel bad; I made the same mistake when I first started and read that statement LITERALLY also. If you have a chance please go back and correct as many as you can, if you have entered a bunch of records that way.
I am glad you asked before you did a large number of transcriptions that way.
