Single field name search
It has become fairly difficult to do creative name searches in the historical records collections. When I try to just put in an unusual first name and a date it says there is not enough information. This is a problem. I used to be able to do this and not being able to do so limits the ability to find pertinent records. I also find that I get many error messages when I do searches. I am getting so frustrated that I generally give up and jump over to Ancestry. I know so many others that are doing the same thing. Even records I know are there I can't find any more. The filters are just too tight. I love FamilySearch and hate having to do this but I just don't have the time to deal with it. I would appreciate looser filters and search restrictions.
