ABSTRACT
The article discusses indexing of surnames in Dutch, German, Austrian, Flemish and Afrikaans languages. Names with prefixes such as von, der or ten, compound or hyphenated surnames, and surnames which include honorary titles are addressed. The author notes that there is little uniformity in the practice from country to country as indexing typically adheres to local standards, and dictionary alphabetization may differ in form from index alphabetization. Lists of common examples of surnames from each language are included.
