Question: There are multiple search results for each name. For example, Albert Smith has 61 results.
Each search result for the same name has a different document attached to it. For example, the first search result to Albert Smith is linked to the first document in the pension file; the second occurrence of the search result is linked to the second document in the pension, and so forth.
