"Reverse Alphabetical Index"

 
Have you used the Reverse Alphabetical Index?  If an initial letter(s) of a town name is illegible, blotted out, or not visible due to poor microfilming, a gazetteer is usually insufficient help. The Reveerse Alphabetical Index is designed for the researcher to work from the end of the place name toward the beginning to form the correct name, test a theoretical spelling or at least formulate a "candidate" name for further examination.
