Multiple first names

Posted: 26 Nov 2009 8:58AM GMT
Classification: Query
I have many people who have multiple first names, especially when a descendant uses a last name as a first name. However, BK only looks for the first of the first names.
Examples:
Martin John Harry Minchin [search for > ? Minchin]
Minchin Frederick Frend [search for > Minchin ?]
Joseph Bernard Minchin Boyle [what do I search? ]

I can find those with Last name Minchin no problem, and Minchin Frederick Frend but the third example seems impossible to find easily.
It is possible if I use Find>Word Serach>Any Field>Create Report. But then I have to sift through hundreds of people (I have over 500 Minchins) with the last name of Minchin, but I want to find those that have Minchin as one of their first names. A long a tedious way of searching.
Has any BK user a simpler method??
Assistance greatly appreciated.
