need 'Match Case' option . . . please can we have a Match Case option when we use Advanced Search to search the message boards for a particular word?

This would be especially useful when the surname we are looking for is also a common word that appears in multiple postings.

Good idea Sue.

With the surname Morning in my tree, that would help!

I've given up searching for them on the boards, as I got every Good Morning greeting :-D
