Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Lakes of Ponchartrain - Irish Words
I hope this doesn't come across as being too pedantic, but the Getty Thesaurus of Geographic Names gives PONTCHARTRAIN as the correct spelling. Note the "T" as the fourth letter.

I mention this in order to help people who might want to search for Ponchartrain/Pontchartrain, either in Mudcat or on the Internet. Most search engines aren't smart enough to be flexible on matters of spelling.
