Does the Site Allow Multiple Wildcards?

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

Sometimes combining wildcards is necessary in order to find all reasonable matches for a surname. Before relying on such searches, make certain the site actually supports the use of multiple wildcards. The most efficient search for the last name of Sartorius is to insert wildcards for the first “r” and before the final “s.” That is based upon the main variants for this name. Multiple wildcards may be the best way to construct your searches.searchtip-claude-sartorius
