Hi everyone, I was wondering if there wasn't some way to link names with different spellings. For example I have 9 different versions of my surname in 12 generations. This means I have to lookup 9 different pages to see what is happening. Also there is the likelihood that someone may miss a link because of a Parish Clerk's idiosyncratic spelling. Heron, Hearon, Herring for example or Cocbone, Cockbone, Cockbane, Cockburn, Coburn. Any suggestions? Thanks for a site with great potential. Jim
