  • The results will be different if you use a single name or multiply name.
  • Single word search brings up that word.  Multiple word search brings up every location where either one or both of the words were found in the search.
  • If you know the  woman’s maiden name use the search feature using only the maiden name without the use of commas or quote marks.
  • If you know the woman’s first name and maiden name you can use first name followed by maiden name in (        ).  It is the way used in this website to list it when it is known.
