There are so many ways to spell certain sounds in French that it sometimes becomes difficult to even recognize a name as the one for which you are searching. In episode 4 of Maple Stars and Stripes (MapleStarsandStripes.com/4), we take a look at the many ways of spelling the long O sound and why it’s not always a good idea to rely on a Soundex search when trying to find an ancestor in an online database.
In episode 2 (MapleStarsandStripes.com/2), we covered dit names. Here we look at other types of name variations that can also make it difficult to find a hard-to-locate ancestor.
