Name Search

Check the Society armorial database for personal, household, order and branch names.


The search mode menu controls how the text you enter will be matched against the database.

  • Plain Text: looks for the text you entered, exactly as it was typed.
  • Pattern: uses Perl-compatible regular expressions.
  • Fuzzy Search: matches names that might sound similar. For example, "Jean," "Joan," and "Jim" would all match each other.
  • Custom Fuzzy Search: Allows you to define your own rules for what sounds alike.
