       - _ones will show JONES, BONES et

TIP:
If you are interested in a particular county,
just enter that county and click on "Search.."
You can then narrow it down using a surname or place search.


PLEASE NOTE:
In Versions 1 and 2 of the SIT you could only enter a Surname and a Comments text. So any additional information was always in the Comments text.

Any older entries, which haven't been edited to take advantage of the new features can only be searched on the Surname and Comment fields

So you will probably need to search for any name at least twice, using:
1) just the Surname and/or Comment field,
2) at least one of any of the fields.
