I tried it without limiting it to just TX, but that's still the only family with that spelling that comes up.The nice part about that site, the index is fairly user friendly, and often will come up names with similar spellings.Espescially in the given name department.You type in Bill, and often Will and William will also come up, too.That spoils you real quick.If you do not find your person, use just the first initial.It will not pull up the initials with the given names.
