We report both measured and calculated rotationally resolved threshold photoelectron spectra for single-photon coherent VUV ionization of the X ^1A_1 ground state of jet-cooled H_2O and H_2S. Agreement between the calculated and measured spectra is very encouraging. Both the H_2O and H_2S spectra show type a transitions which arise from odd angular momentum components of the photoelectron matrix element and are quite molecular in origin. These type a transitions, however, are much weaker in H_2S due to its more atomiclike character.
