See Genealogy for Armenians pages 104-107 (images 108-111) for typed and handwritten examples of the Armenian alphabet. Note: The sounds and transliterations of the letters as used in the book are for Western Armenian. Some letter sounds will be different in Eastern Armenian (ex: բ = b, գ = g, դ = d, ծ = ts, կ = k, ձ = dz, ճ = ch, պ = p, ջ = j, տ = t).
The following romanization/transliteration table was used to create the English version of place names in the FamilySearch Catalog based on their Armenian names -- ALA-LC Romanization Table for Armenian
Note: English place names referring to Armenian cities during the Russian Empire time-period were typically created based on the Russian version of the name per the 1880 gazetteer for the Ėrivan Gubernia. See the ALA-LC Romanization table for Russian.
