There will always be a problem with popular 'common' names (how snobbish we brits are!), eg, Smith, Brown, and my surname, ROBINSON. This is unavoidable, of course, but it may be worthwhile--and perhaps more efficient and easier with those with less common surnames--to have a separate list with the more popular surnames. is this possible? Even so, as a new subscriber, thankyou for such an excellent site so far,and thanks to \estelle for reply to my query. Keep up the good work!
