Wild Card in Surname Search Field?

+2 votes
118 views
We can search using an asterisk wild card in the Full Name search field. Is there a reason why we cannot use this in the Surname field? I might not need a list of all Betty Bo*, but I might want a list of the variations on the Bo* family name, Boop, Boup, Boope, and so on. Sandi Wiggins

Sandi, you and Daniel made almost the same suggestion at the same time:

:-)

I'll put this on the to-do list.
