What Variants It Does Not Include
Keep an open mind to variants that some computer databases aren't set to "pick up," particularly with first names. My search for Arvin Butler has grown to include Irvin and Ervin. Ancestry.com and Familysearch do not always catch all first name variants, even when a "fuzzy" or "non-exact" search is conducted.
