  • Surnames with prefixes such as Mc, Mac, or De may be listed as alphabetically without the prefix; i.e. Donald, John, Mc for John McDonald.
  • If the search engine doesn't yield results, browse the rosters. It is very possible for there to be a misspelling in the original rosters or incorrect transcription.

    • Use * in place of multiple letters; i.e., John*on will find Johnston, Johnson, etc.
    • Use ? in place of one letter; i.e., Johns?n will find Johnson, Johnsen, etc.
