Search engine errors!!!!
Why, when I do and "Exact" search using the actual birth year or a narrow range (10 years or so) do I get results going back a hundred years?????
Today I did a search using the nation of birth, the location of living (US) and a 10 year range for the birth year (1900-1910) with the "Exact" box with an "X" in it and got the following: (1) 16,500,000+ possibilities; (2) range of birth years--on the first 5 pages--(1610-1945); (3) no names--on the first 5 pages--for women with the correct spouse's surname (also with an exact "X"; (4) a new search after placing an "X" in the father's given name gave 16,000+ possiblities with none on the first page within the birth year range.
What's up with this new search engine??? Going through thousands of records--most of which are out of range entered--is something I don't have time or mental effort to scroll through (not to mention the discouragement and throwing up of the hands at the impossibility of finding what I need that "may" be in the database.
This new search engine has got to be fixed when narrowed searching is a necessity!!!!
