Re: Given name anglicized to "Leonora" from ?? #germany

At the time the name was written, a capital L in some forms of script
would have looked like an S. I have seen names on US censuses for
people whose name I know begins with an L, but the initial letter
certainly looks like an S. Thus the transcriber's question about the name.
