Alsace-Lorraine Place Name Indexes: Identifying Place Names Using Alphabetical and Reverse Alphabetical Indexes

Sometimes when researching, you can read every letter in the town name except the first; or else the page is torn or eaten away, the ink faded, or the initial letter overly artistic. Then begins the process of guessing what the first letter or syllable is. This book offers a quick solution to the problem for names in Alsace-Lorraine. You can construct the name letter-by-letter backwards, using the legible letters and working from the end toward the beginning. If the name as you first spell it cannot be found on a map or in a gazetteer, compare it to other names in the reverse alphabetical index and you will likely find the correct version.
