Hi Jackie,

Surname index pages can't be merged. There is no simple solution to this. However, we do have it on the to-do list to make searches more robust, so that alternates are included.

By the way, capitalization shouldn't matter. McDowell and MCDowell should already be considered the same in searches and appear on the same surname index page.
