Apollos is spelled with 2 "L's" in the system, Willox-342.

Aaron is spelled with one "L" in the system, Wilcox-5655

I did not experience any problem with the search button.

Does this help you?

Thank-you Susan for the *. Hope you are having a good day.
You too Rodney
Thank you. I shall look again and correct as necessary Certainly Willox is wrong! All the Wilcox names in my early line should be either Wilcockson or Wilcox with 1 l, though Wilcoxson is sometimes found. I know who was responsible for adding a l in my surname and that was much later.
