Search for a Surname
Surname Search performs a search of all the Collections that are database driven. Currently this search does not search studies such as Hounsfield Families, Antwerp Churches, etc. Although the search does not look at maiden names, it does search both brides and grooms in the Marriage Collection.
Soundex (sounds like) is not implemented. The search does return all surnames that begin with the search value. For example if you search for smith, it will return smith, smithers, smithing, etc.
Only those collections in which the surname or partial surname is found are displayed. If no results are returned, you may want to try different spellings of the surname or search for just the first 3 or 4 letters of the name. Currently soundex (sounds like) is not implemented.
