Ancestry improves wildcard searches

Ancestry has improved its wildcard facility when searching its databases. Previously there had to be at least three letters in a search term before a a wildcard could be used (? for one letter, * for several), but the site now allows a wildcard to start a search term (though it must still contain three letters).
