As I was searching through a census page once, I saw surnames and given names that
weren't recognizable. I realized that the cursive capital S was really an L. And the
S was written as I would print it. This was brought home recently when I was looking
for a Levi, and could only find a Sevi. And Sevi is rare compared to Levi.
