How Alphabetical Is It?

When using indexes to county or local records, remember that they are likely NOT strictly alphabetical. The "B" section of the index may (should) include all the last names that start with the letter "B," but they are likely entered in chronological order, not purely alphabetical.

Remember also that "Mc" and "Mac" names may have their own section of the index.
