Switzerland Place Name Indexes: Identifying Place Names Using Alphabetical and Reverse Alphabetical Indexes, CD, by Roger P. Minert, Ph.D., A.G. with Jennifer A. Anderson; CD; PC; 2004; Item # M0026.
In just the last few years, researchers in Germanic family history have been learning about the great utility and value of reverse alphabetical indexes. To date, 14 volumes, each geared to a specific area of the Second German Empire, have been published. For the first time, a similar collection of indexes is available on CD-ROM.
This tool for the identification of correct place name spellings offers four search options: (1) Alphabetical Indexes: For all of Switzerland or by canton, search for a specific set of letters in the standard alphabetical order.
(2) Reverse alphabetical indexes: For all of Switzerland or by canton, search for a specific set of letters at the end of a place name.
(3) Interior searches: For all of Switzerland or by canton, search for any combination of consecutive letters (such as -berg-) in any position of the place name.
(4) Parish affiliation search: Determine the parish to which any given town in Switzerland belongs. This CD-ROM is compatible with any PC Windows browser. The program is completely bilingual, so that users who read both German and English can enjoy the search options. Instructions for the use of the reverse alphabetical indexes are provided, as is a map of the cantons of Switzerland. Any researcher with a desktop or a laptop computer featuring a CD-ROM drive can now perform these searches in seconds and solve the mysteries of spellngs for place names in Switzerland.
