Is it possible to add the "Cologne phonetics" to the phonetic search?

This algo is more 'familar' with german surnames.

There is also a php-implementation described. [1] and [2]


BTW: What's the difference between "Phonetic search" and the "Advanced search -> sounds like" option?

Nice suggestion! Searches with "sounds like" are currently a bit hit & miss. It's difficult to get both Meijer and Meyer returned. Very common here in Holland that IJ and Y spelling are used for the same name.

The sounds-like option in Advanced Search uses the Russell algorithm while Phonetic Search (and Lists - Branches) gives you the choice to pick the Daitch-Mokotoff alternative.
stamboom.BertKoor.nl runs on webtrees v1.7.9
