Re: Need suggestions for how to search for misspelled family names #records


Use wildcard symbols (typically asterisks) in your searches. My grandfather’s surname, Sader, was misspelled in every census! I then tried S*d*r and other combinations. You may get a lot of erroneous results, but you should also capture the right ones. - Kathryn Kanarek James, Annandale, VA
