Please note that the Surname (e.g. Last Name) for either Groom or Bride (e.g. at least one or the other) 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.
