The Search searches all the Gedcom records for
matches.

I would like (an option?) not to include the media titles
and notes in this search.
Currently all the individuals who appear in a picture and
its note with a certain person are returned when I
search for his name.

See for instance the result of Misse in my test site.

    That is what the soundex search is for.

    The current Soundex works only on LtR names.
    It does not recognize Vaprinsky and Waprinsky as the same
    name.
    It does not look at the married name, the nickname or the
    ROMN or _HEB names.

    On the other the regular search on the name my mother was
    known by (Nickname and Married Familyname) returns 10
    individuals (one of them my mother), because all these people
    have links to a media object with a note that contains the
    name my mother was known by.

    The soundex search will return an exact name match just as
    well as the general search. Typing in Vaprinsky will return all
    of the Vaprinsky's just like the general search will return all of
    the Vaprinsky's. The soundex search will just limit the search
    to the NAME field, which is what you want.

    The general search is meant to search everything in the
    gedcom, that is what gives it its power. When I search for
    something, I want to know if it is in the notes or sources of
    another person because that will give me more information
    about that person and how they might have had a
    connection to someone else.

    OK OK

    (Although I have written in the AKA different surname
    spellings.)
