I was updating info tonight from Christmas letters. One old girl provided a lot of info, but only by first names, i.e., "Anita and Paul were married in August." I have over 6,000 names in my database, and it is very time consuming to locate individuals without a surname or RIN. PAF2 and BK5 both allowed searches on any of the fields, PAF 4 only seems to allow searches and sorts by surname and RIN. Does anyone know if there is a way to search by given name?
