blocker which prevents a new window from launching. This web page launches a new
window so that you can return to this page to try the other search buttons.
Set your pop-up blocker to allow pop-ups for this web site. You do NOT need to block pop-ups on this site because it does NOT use any pop-up advertisements.
Why are there so many
different search engine searches?
Both Google and MSN are limited
in what can be searched. For example, Google searches are restricted to only 10
words. For this reason, the names are combined in different ways to search the
web. Yahoo has the ability to search for all of the names together in one
search. Only Google can search for the middle name as a wildcard. For example
"John * Smith" will match "John Henry Smith".
the Search buttons to try various MSN Searches
MSN searches are restricted to 128 characters.
Check your searches with long names to see if they are truncated.
