Castle Garden search technique #general


Mimi Katz <GeveretKatz@...>
 

While playing with the Castle Garden website (www.castlegarden.org), I
realized that it's possible to search by first name only. After not finding
my ancestor using his correct surname, I tried using various given names
only. To reduce the number of hits, I added a first initial of his surname
with a wildcard *. Sure enough, I found him with an incorrect surname
spelling that I never would have found on my own!

Be creative!
