Hi there. Does any have a solution for this process on Genes?

Very few people on here use Genes for their research.

I've just experimented, and find that if you put the street name in the "optional keywords" box, you get more-or-less relevant results.

For instance, if you put "Regent Street" as a keyword, you get results where the word "Regent" features at least somewhere in the address .

However, as Nameslessone says, hardly any of us use GR for research. Other sites are much easier to search and give more information.


If you like to tell us the street name, in which town, and what you want to know about it, we'll have a look for you on other sites.
