Search consistency request
I sometimes wish FamilySearch had more consistency and functionality in some of its searching.
The Digital Book search is really deficient (doesnt handle AND/OR operators and really only correctly handles one term searches (unless you put quotes around a compound term) and that is not the same as an AND operator https://www.familysearch.org/library/books/
The Memories FIND is better - but still has a few drawbacks
("AND/OR" operators dont work when typed in lower case)
it also does some funky things with words that it somehow assumes are equivalent (do a search on LYNCHING and you get the surname LYNCH - there are some even worse word pairs that come up with surprising/annoying results at times. I really wish for the most part this "word - paring/association" would be turned off - or at least allow an option for exact phrase results only. https://www.familysearch.org/photos/find
and then you have the FamilyTree find https://www.familysearch.org/search/tree/name?from=tree
I'll let others comment on that one . . . .
The Search Catalog - has some different features - customized to the catlog https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog
I totally understand that each area of FamilySearch - needs some degree of uniqueness in its search capabilities - Im not expecting them to be identical. - but just some food for thought - the comments above - for some of the FS Engineers looking for feedback.
Some great tips for making the most of Google searches - see:
