Alternate Surnames

If the last name is MacDonald, look for Donald. If the last name is DeMoss, look for Moss. If the last name starts with an "O," drop it. Try looking for Wall instead of Van de Wall.

And on the reverse side, if the last name is Neill, you might want to try O' Neill or McNeill. Just in case.
