Please disregard my previous post on this, it was accidently submitted incomplete & incorrect.
I'm using the Vic BDM Family History online search (link below) and I get strange results. I'm hoping someone can help me get my head around this.
If I enter 'GARDENER' as the family name in the very first field & nothing else anywhere, I get 200 results. If I then enter 'GARDENER' into the Father's Family Name field also, I get 12 results. There are a few possible reasons but the discrepancy is huge.
If I type family name GARDENER & spouse name McDOUGALL (my gp's) I find the marriage, but if I add any of the parent's surnames I get no result.
Unfortunately as Vic BDM chooses to charge a dollar per view beyond the basic search, I'm not in a position to go in just out of curiosity.
