Wildcards work in the name search fields on WikiTree. A ? is a wildcard that substitutes for a single letter and a * substitutes for multiple letters. (Thank you Ellen Smith!)
Some use examples for wildcards:
To search for Elisabeth or Elizabeth, enter Eli?abeth
To search for Elizabeth or Eliza, enter Eliza*
To search for any name that starts Mar, enter Mar*
To search for Margaret, Margriet, Margot, or Margit, enter Marg*t
