Information Specific to this site The soundex codes used for the MCGS records index were generated using the form above. Although soundex coding should consistently produce the same soundex code for a given spelling, variations in interpretation of soundex coding rules can result in multiple codes for a given spelling.
If you look up your soundex code using the above form, you'll have the same one we generated for matching names in our records index.
