JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen "Sounds alike" in Steve Morse's EIDB system #general

The task of making "sound alike" functions is formidable so let me make
clear that this is meant as a tip, not as criticism.

I was looking for someone named Grunspan on EIDB, going through the Steve
Morse pages. Even using the sound alike function I could not find the

Eventually she turned up as Grinschpan, which to my ear sound very much
like Grunspan. But obviously not on that function. So others might do
well to keep in mind that "s" and "sh" may have to be searched separately.
