if I understood correctly, you want that, when you enter in Find Mode, the cursor enter in the SurnameField.
Menu: Layout > Set Tab order
You will see arrows for each field present in the layout indicating the order they will be navigated.
Be sure that SurnameField is number 1.
Adjust all the other field in the sequence you like.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
