Find Soundex Code for Surname

Soundex is a method of coding surnames based on how a surname sounds rather than how it is spelled. Surnames such as Smith and Smyth, which sound the same but are spelled differently, will have the same code.

The Soundex coding system was developed to allow finding surnames recorded under various spellings or misspellings. Double Metaphone improves upon the Soundex method, and may be used when searching the databases on this website.
