Important Tips for searching
The Search function will work with the exact spelling in the order it appears in our records. If your search proves unsuccessful it is likely that your spelling is wrong or the order of words is incorrect.
If you are uncertain of exact spelling, order of words or spacing of any variable, use the asterisk (*) (also known as a "wild card") instead of the letters you are uncertain about.
If you are looking for a client but are uncertain about the name depending on what information you have, use the asterisk to narrow down to the record.
