I am participating as a proofreader in the Israel Genealogy Research Association's project to index the 1938 German Jerusalem Consulate contact cards. The penmanship on many of the cards presents problems, so it is often necessary for me to verify the indexed information via pre-existing external sources, most notably the JewishGen databases.
I have had various cards where the subject (or the subject's father) was a male named Saly or Sally. More often than not, it proves to be Salomon or Solomon.
[Rose, a vital genealogical event has further impeded my progress with the latest batch you gave me; my wife and I are now compelled to go up North to meet our new granddaughter, who arrived slightly ahead of schedule this past Shabbat.].
