Is there a wildcard character on this web site. For example, I want to search on Savage but don't have the exact spelling for the Ellis Island documents. I want to searach on Sa% to pull up all of the last names that start with Sa. Can anyone help?
I've come across an interesting situation recently. A branch of my family came from Dölitz, Kriese Pyritz, Prussia. This is one of several Kriese that were moved to Poland in 1945. By Googling I was able to find that Dölitz is now Dolice, Poland. How should I go about listing this in my family tree? Currently I have Dölitz, Pyritz, Germany even though I know Germany wasn't a country at the time (1790s to 1830s). Any thoughts?

Thought I'd be smart, not so sure I was. I started one tree for both sides of my family, at first it was simple now it seems overwhelming. Is there a way of moving an entire family to start another tree?
