My surname, Sheppard, has been spelled this way only since about the 1930s. Before that, Shepherd for generations. My spelling in my lines (direct and collateral) is rather unique, and so I know all of those who use this spelling, first cousins, etc.
Since the spelling I would normally search under is Shepherd, I wonder if the search bar(s) at the top of my profile page and other pages could just be left blank. It always has Sheppard in the surname bar.
And, truly, all of us are searching miltiple lines and an untold number of surnames, including surnames of those we help out, whether privately or on G2G. I'd rather have it blank so that I'm not always having to erase my surname before searching. Does this make sense? Thanks!
If one of the G2G monitors sees I missed an important tag, please add it on. Thanks!
