In your request, please include ALL of the data from the results of the database search.
Please note that the Surname (e.g. Last Name) is a required entry field. But since exact spellings are not always known, to aid your search we offer three different ways to specify Surnames.
Exact Match (“is exactly”): This is the default surname search method.
Soundex (“sounds like”): This option enables you to specify a surname spelling it out as best you can, and it will return results that “sound” similar to what you spelled out.
Wild Card: With this option you can replace part of the surname with a % to match any number of letters, or _ to match a single letter. So for example, Sch% will return all names starting with Sch. Similarly, Schl_tz might return results such as Schlitz or Schlotz.
For whichever of the above surname search options you would like to use, simply select the appropriate radio button option below the input field on the form. Although the additional form fields are optional, providing as much information as you can helps narrow your search. The more specific your search, the less time you need spend scrolling through search results!
