Searching hints:   Some of the older articles have alternative spellings for names. You'll have to be "creative" in searching for your relatives. An example would be for McGough ... try M'Gough. There's articles mentioning both spelling variations. Once you're viewing the page, use the Edit > Find on your browser's menu bar to locate the article within the web page (if it's a page with multiple articles on it).
