We have over the last couple of days discussed the database for the  
The Soldier in Later Medieval England project, at <http:// 
www.icmacentre.ac.uk/soldier/database/index.php>, on this list, in a  
thread with the subject line "Agincourt soldier history online  
database".  Questions were raised as to whether some or all of the  
surnames in the database might have been normalized, due to an  
ambiguous statement on the website.  So I used the "for more  
information contact" link at the bottom of the index page to ask for  
clarification.  Dr. Adrian Bell, Senior Lecturer in the History of  
Finance and Director of Teaching and Learning at the ICMA Centre,  
answered my inquiry, confirming that while the given names have been  
normalized, the surnames are unaltered.
