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.
