    3. Hi Sheelagh I use the 'wild card' a lot when I'm searching the WA BMD - due to the variations in spelling and transcribing. I didn't know how 'Sidney/Sydney' would be spelled - and I didn't want to look through too many with surname SMITH so for the first name field I typed '%ney' where the '%' sign is the wild card. Works a treat. Trove? Yes - spend a lot of time there myself. Good luck.
