Improve/Correct 'exact' search engine matching
Searching for persons born in Louisiana, using the location "United States" "Louisiana", I am presented with results from persons in Califiornia born in "L.A."
This is probably because Louisiana has an alternate name 'LA' to match its abbreviation,
However, the results are not valid, and this exemplifies a problem with the search engine which is apparently stripping non-alphabetical characters from source data before comparison.
Hence "Louisiana" has an alternate name "LA" and thus = "L.A." even in an exact search.
This is not correct.
If the user chooses an exact match, then the query matching process should be comparing the raw untouched source data with the criterion.
