Surname Crossmatch – Variations

Added a new Surname Variants search option to the Cross-Reference  Search, which now includes variants of the selected surnames in the search. sname_xref_var2 In the previous version a search for Sullivan and Collins would only have located any parish where exact matches to both the surnames appeared, the ‘Include Surname Variations’ option would also utilize similar surnames in the search such as  OSullivan, Sullivans, Sullivane etc, and Collin, along with misspellings and possible typos such as  Colliins, Sullivn etc.

The surnames variants used in the search can be displayed by ‘hovering’ the mouse pointer over each of the surnames in the column header.
