Search will sometimes not recognize spelling variations in names. For example, a search for Katherine Lawrence does not find Katharine Lawrence. Ancestry corrects that by allowing fuzzy searches and wild card searches.

That is unfortunate with that first name since that is a common difference, which could be the reason for duplicates being created.  Spelling variation is used in the last name.  Catharine is being returned when searching for Katharine, so it would be nice to father the variation with 'e' used.  Add sysops and search as tags since the Search function is not a Data Doctors problem.  That is part of the system.
