Notes

Fuzzy searching allows you to check for different spellings that are phonetically similar. For example, try the above search again, replacing "WILFRED" with "WILLFRED", and "EGGLETON" with "EGLETON". Also, try experimenting to get an idea of how far off the spelling can get before you no longer get a match returned.
