Don’t Match Exactly!

Avoid setting your search at any site to “match exactly.” Names get spelled incorrectly, places of birth are incorrect, ages are off, etc. There There are times where exact matches will get you what you want, but many times it can limit your search to the point where the desired item is not returned.

This is especially true for any name that is in a foreign language or the informant does not speak the local language.
