Searching Tips

  • Do not use a comma to separate first and last names.
  • The order is not not important: first name last name, or last name first name.
  • The case is not important: john jones, John Jones, or JOHN JONES.
  • Search for first name or last name only, or for fragments of names; "libb" will bring up entries for people with first names "Libby" and "Libbie" as well as last name "Libby."
