Reading It Cold

Remember that in many cases, the indexer indexing the record you are using was not familiar with the names in the area where the records were created. In most cases, they are reading the names "cold." Keep that in mind when formulating searches and contemplating alternate spellings. You may know what it says. Someone else may not.
