Re: 'Nother Heraldic 'Sperimen

Poster: "Beverly Robinson-Curry" <corvus2@worldnet.att.net>

I have been advised that my meaning was not sufficiently clear regarding
modern names...  We are just asking for those in order to clear up
ambiguities in the Order of Precedence.  Modern name linked to SCA name
information will not be available to the general public or even to the
College of Heralds beyond select members of Triton's staff (Triton, Golden
Dolphin and Clerk of Precedence).  It is simply so the Clerk of Precedence
can figure out if, for example, Robert Macsweil and Robert Maxwell are the
same person and can then, check to see which name (if either) is actually
registered and catalog all that person's awards under one name.

It is not at all uncommon for several different spellings to appear with
regard to the same person and if the CoP is not personally familiar with
that person or present in those courts, he may not know to put the awards

Rhiannon, Triton
