PHONETIC FILING ORDER OF NAMES:
An unusually complex system was used for filing surnames. This system files letters of the alphabet in a different sequence than usual. The following instructions are recommended to help locate the surname you are seeking in these files. Here are described the values of the letters of the alphabet, and their unusual filing orders.
(A), (Au), (E, Ä, Ö), (Ei, Eu, Ej, Ey, Ai, Aj, Ay), (I, Ie, J, Ü, Y), (O, Ou), (U), (B, P), (C, G, K, Q, X, Ch, Ck, Cs, Cz, Ks), (D, T, Th), (F, V, W), (H), (L), (M), (N, Nck, Ng, Nk), (R), (S, Sch, Sz, , Cz, Tsch, Tz, Z).
Note that all vowels are filed before the consonants, rather than in their normal alphabetic sequence. Letters or combinations of letters within the same parenthesis are used interchangeably and thus not regarded as different in filing. Each of the letters or combination of letters occupy one space in the filing sequence.
SPECIAL FILING RULES FOR SPECIFIC LETTERS:
Double letters with one sound are filed as one (Ott). Double letters with two sounds are filed separately (Ollerieth). and Cz are filed as C when it is at the first of the word (Czermak). and Cz are filed as S when not at the first of the word (Baczek). E is disregarded in filing when it is not voiced (-el, -er, ie). E is filed as E when it is voiced (Noel). H is filed as H when it is the first letter of the word (Hermann). H is filed as C within a word if it is voiced (Neuhofer). H is disregarded in filing when it is not voiced (ah, eh, ih, oh, uh, ch, gh, ph, th) (Rohrer).
Names beginning with vowels are filed by the first vowel sound, and then by the next vowel sound if present, and then by the first consonant sound. They are then filed by the second consonant sound grouped in order first by the vowels preceding the second consonant. Names with no vowels preceding the second consonant are filed following those that have vowels between the first and second consonants. This pattern continues until the end of the word, filing by each consonant, first running through all the vowels preceding that consonant.
Names beginning with consonants are filed together with their sound alike group. After the first consonant sound, names are filed by the second consonant sound grouped in order first by all of the vowels preceding the second consonant. Names with no vowel preceding the second consonant are filed following those that have vowels between the consonants. This pattern continues for the entire name.
