|Hints for searching: Names that you will find on these pages were generally transcribed as they were found. Many times they were originally recorded phonetically and the spelling may not be as you know it today. |
If you are using the full name, try just the surname. If looking for a name that may be two word, i.e., McCory, try using MC CORY, MCCORY, or even M'CORY. My suggestion would be to search for M*CORY to cover all three variations.
By default the search engine tries to locate pages which have exact matches for all of the words entered in your search query. If that fails, it then tries to locate pages which contain any words in your search query. If that happens a short message is displayed at the top of the search results indicating this has been done.
In addition, there are several ways to modify the default search behavior.
