              There are 3 options for the "Search Type" that govern results for the "Last Name" field:
                 1. Fuzzy - when exact spelling of the last name is unknown, this setting will yield the most results.
                 2. Soundex - if you do not know the exact spelling, but do know the first letter.
                 3. Exact - use only when the exact spelling is known.                                          Request additional information on individual clients directly from HIAS.
