Why does FamilySearch totally ignore the years I specify in my search ?
No matter what years I enter, the results will include hundreds (sometimes thousands) of BMDs spanning at least a century. And many of the results in the list don't show a year, so there's no way of telling whether there's any point in opening that record - or you could waste hours opening each one only to discover that it's totally irrelevant to your search specification.
Here's an example: in a recent search for a baptism between 1808 and 1812, FamilySearch came up with 2,144 results between 1709 and 1837.
Their search engine has become so vague, that I've almost given up using the website, which is a shame because it used to be absolutely wonderful.
