Search for individuals by specifying a given name, surname or both. A table of all matching individuals is returned with links to each record. All recorded names for each person are checked. With women, both maiden names and husbands’ surnames are checked (unless the family record is flagged as ‘Unmarried Couple’ or ‘Never Married’). Matching a woman’s husband’s surname is done on the assumption that his surname is likely to be her married name.
1.2 If user cancels the prompt it now simply returns
1.2 Corrected incorrect operation where user presses enter rather than pressing the OK button.
1.3 Added option to search using basic soundex for both the name and surname.
1.4 Added Default values from the currently selected record if there is one
1.5 Fix identification of Secondary Names and a search of subfields for Nickname, Used Name and the Surname and Given Name subfields.

I would like this feature of search name/surname in multiple gedcom files, because usually I work on many projects at the same time.
It might be possible within FH?

It's not possible to search multiple gedcoms from a single project. Sorry
