The Search function does not find readily available records
I hate to complain about a wonderful free website like Family Search, but something is broken in the Search function. I've been researching mostly in the UK records for the past year, and I couldn't make any progress if I didn't have access to Ancestry, particularly, and also Find My Past. When I start a search on a new name, typically a search on FS will bring up one or two useful results, and the next 8-10 (if in fact 8-10 more are found) are totally useless. When I run the same search on Ancestry, I typically get 8-10 useful hits. I often copy the information from Ancestry onto FS, and that may bring up a couple more hits, so it's clear the information was already in the FS database, but the search engine wasn't finding it. I know Ancestry has databases FS doesn't have, but still, FS doesn't find the info it does have. Also, the options to focus the search are not very helpful. If I want to look only at one country's records, for example, I don't see a way to do that. I wonder if you benchmark your search function against Ancestry's. I find both their Edit Search function and their results much more powerful than FS. I'm sorry for those who don't have a free Ancestry membership, as the results coming from FS are wholly inadequate to do even mid-level tree building.
