A family name or xxx, which yields cases where the family name is missing, must be specified.
Likewise, xxx as a first name yields cases where the first name is missing.
The first name «anonyme» yields those cases where a child died before receiving its first name at baptism, having received only a provisional baptism (ondoiement).

You can use wildcards in a name or a firstname.
'%' operator matches any string of zero or more characters. It can be used as either a prefix or a suffix. (ex: 'goudr%')
'_' (underscore) matches any single character in a string comparison operation that involves pattern matching. (ex: '_an')

You can limit your research on the basis of the sex, period of birth or characteristic of the individual.
