Suddenly over the past week or so you seem to have loosened your search criteria. For example if I search for the surname "Child" I wil get half a dozen results but these will be hidden amongst pages with the surname "Childs" and quite a few other surnames beginning "Child...". Please can we go back to the old unique search. I am tearing my hair out with the results I now get which are destroying the usefulness of this site.
