Using an asterisk in the example "J*n" can bring up names such as John or Jean because the asterisk can replace multiple characters. Using a question mark in the example "J?n" will bring up names such as Jan or Jon because the question mark only replaces one character. Try out these other tips when searching for elusive records!

On July 12, 1973 16-18 million military personnel records were destroyed in a fire—a disaster unparalleled in the U.S. records-keeping history. Most of these records had no duplicates, or microfilm copies. It was estimated that 80 percent of Army personnel and 75 percent of Air Force personnel records from 1912 to 1960 were lost forever. Just as harmful as a fire, is the destruction that happens as sunlight, dust, water, heat, humidity, acid, chemical coatings, and a myriad of other natural processes eat away at the world’s historical records if they are not properly preserved. Learn what FamilySearch is doing to prevent the deterioration of these historical records.
