Entries are sorted by given names first, to help you find a remarried aunt. These are
in strict alphabetical order, not word-by-word, so that Rose Mary and Rosemary are
treated the same, but it also puts the Josephine names between the Joseph I
and Joseph J names. Surnames are considered next, so that Daniel Zimmerman
would come before Danielle Abbott.
A person may be listed twice.
