2 Less is more
You might have thought that entering everything you know about someone into the search fields of a family history website would be the best way to flush out all of the records held on them, but this is not always true. The more details you put in, the more the website’s algorithm will prioritise those facts. For example if you include year of death in your search, then records that include that will be bumped up higher in the results. Play around with what you enter and what you leave out. Each time you will get different results, and there may be a perfect combination that helps you find what you are looking for.
