Why doesn't 'exact search' work?
Say I search for a marriage...I have the couple's names and the date their first child was born so I can estimate the years I need to search. So, I enter both names (say, John Smith and Mary Jones), all dates ( say 1800 to 1830), and the place (say England, Norfolk). Then I make sure to tick the box for "Marriage" click on "Exact search".
What I get is usually something like John Smittern was father at a christening in Suffolk in 1958. Or Marion James was christened in 1720.
This site used to be really good, easy to use and extremely helpful. Now I only use it as a last resort and it's basically useless.
What is the trick to making it work like it used to?
