Family Search Doesn't Automatically Soundex

Goldenstein and Goldenstien are soundex equivalents. However, searching for Voke Goldenstein and Voke Goldenstien in the 1880 census at Familysearch ( does not give the same results. Voke Goldenstein does not bring up any results. Voke Goldenstien brings up one result--in Adams County, Illinois.

Name "matches" in Familysearch do not necessarily catch each and every Soundex equivalent.
