Wrong Answers are Fine

Remember that part of this blog is seeing how the same name could be read differently by different people. That’s what makes some names difficult to find in indexes.

There’s never any judgment here for an incorrect answer. Never.  I don’t want anyone to feel embarrassed for an answer or feel they have to remove a wrong submission.

Those other interpretations are helpful for those of us who have names that are hard to find in indexes.

And usually the names are ones that are from my own research–which is why I usually know how to “read” them. That’s also why long-time readers know if it looks anywhere close to “Trautvetter” or “Tinsley” it’s probably “Trautvetter” or “Tinsley.” Although we do sometimes throw other names in just to mix things up.

And, as always, thanks for playing!
