I thought I'd posted on the Ansteorran list about these.

One of their pages claims that they normalized the names -- that is,
standardized on modern spellings.  Another says that they normalized
only the given names, leaving surnames alone.  Someone who did a
little searching suggested that the surnames were indeed left intact.
I'm still a little suspicious.
