You can search by last name or by first and last name. It is preferable to use both names to reduce the potential number of false matches. Simply enter the first and last name of the individual you wish to check. Your search may return matches with similar names. If your search returns any matches, check to see if the names returned are an exact match. You only need to be concerned if there is an exact match.
