US, Illinois, Chicago—Catholic Church Records, 1833–1910 [Part A]


Diacritics


If a diacritic is used in a record, be sure to include it when you index the name. Some diacritics may be unfamiliar to you and could be mistaken for other letters. In this example, note the ł in Władisław and Stanisława and the ń in Stroczyński.
