                 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  a complete client file on the HIAS Records Search page.
