 Search for exact surname (no wildcard)  ?
Search for exact surname: By default the search facility adds a wildcard (%) to the end of the surname to return more results. If you want to search for an exact surname, tick this box and the wildcard search will be disabled.
 Include similar surnames  ?
Include Similar Surnames: Ticking this option will search for any surnames that have a similar sounding name to your search, based on the Soundex algorithm. This only works if the surname you've entered is more than 2 characters. It may also slow down your search.
