16.93: Indexing names of places beginning with “Saint”

Chapter Contents / Alphabetizing / Names of Places

Names of places beginning with Saint, Sainte, St., or Ste. should be indexed as they appear in the text—that is, abbreviated only if abbreviated in text. Like personal names, they are alphabetized as they appear. Cross-references may be appropriate (e.g., “Saint. See St.,” or vice versa). Note that French hyphenates place-names with Saint.
