That article is still available to Plus Edition subscribers at http://eogn.com/wp/?p=22388. You might want to read that article again now to refresh it in your mind before proceeding with new topics.

These search terms work well for single words, but you may find you need to include multiple words or phrases.

Perhaps there were two or more men of the same name who lived in different places at different times.
