Does One Letter Make a Difference?

How would one letter change that name?
The omission of one letter changes “Orange” to “range.” Quite a difference.

How would the omission of one letter from the surname for which you are searching change it? Would the soundex code be the same? Would the name even be pronounced the same? Would the error be easy to find in an index.

Think about one letter being dropped. You might be surprised at the variants you come up with.
