How to use this Search Form

The Search Form supports two wildcard characters "?" and "*"

The "?" character matches any single character for example the pattern  "Eli?abeth" will match both "Elizabeth" and "Elisabeth".

The "*" character matches any string of characters. The given pattern must match at word boundaries in the associated data field. So, for example, the pattern "wood" will match a surname of "Wood", but not "Atwood" or "Woodbury" or "Woodward". The pattern "wood*" will match "Wood", "Woodbury" or "Woodward", but not "Atwood". The pattern "woo*d" will match "Wood" and "Woodward", but not "Atwood" or "Woodbury". The pattern "*wood*" will match "Atwood", "Wood", "Woodward" and "Woodbury".
