Turned those names around

Hard to see in this image (click on it to view it larger), but this 1930 census enumeration for Panagiotis Verikios has his names as Verikios Panagiotis. It took me forever to find him as his names were enumerated backwards in the 1930 census.

I was reminded of this when a Casefile Clues reader located the husband of our subject Geske Fecht using the reverse name approach. He was actually Boede Heien, but they listed him in the coroner's report as Heien Boede.
