Counties: Not all places have known counties. These groupings are made automatically:
London / Middlesex; Sussex / E. Sussex, W. Sussex
Yorks. / E. Riding, W. Riding, N. Riding; Lothian / E. Lothian, W. Lothian, Mid-Lothian
Glamorgan / W. Glamorgan, S. Glamorgan, Mid-Glamorgan
County and Country searching may not find all instances.
Date Range: Searching is done within the lifespan of a person (not for a particular event).
Because many birth and death dates are approximate,
an extra 10 years is allowed at each end of a person's life
(for pre-1752 men, 100 years before and after their admission date may have been used).
Hyphenated and multiple-word surnames: Search for an entry that contains the
less common part of the name.
Accented letters: Don't put accented letters in your searches;
accented letters in the data are automatically matched to unaccented letters in your search.
So, searching for surname Muller will find Müller as well.
Non-letters in searches: Only use letters, digits, hyphen, apostrophe,
and the 'wild signs' in searches; other characters may cause errors or unexpected results.
