Many thanks to RamblingRose and Porkie Pie for the help.

Rose is correct, at the top you have Forname, surname, born in, place or birth,

If you hover your mouse over any of the above you will see to the right an arrow pointing either up or down, when you click on any of these it will bring them up as Rose said

Hi Keith , this board is really for suggestions to GR re improvements,

but if you click on 'surname' when you have got the possibles up, it should order the options...I think you may need to click a second time to get all the Odds up first.

Why, when I search for 'Odd' do I get also 'Oddy'. There are vastly more Oddys than Odds so I end up having to go through pages of names I do not want - can I limit the search to ONLY the name I want, not all variants?

It really is getting annoying! :-(
