In PGV 4.2.3 with (general) search function I get a large list of names, however only few names with my search criteria equivalent.
Example by "Franz Anton Mathis" PGV search for "Franz" OR "Anton" OR "Mathis". I get then a list with 322 names, like
ABERER, Karl (because he was buried on the cemetery of St. "Anton").
AMANN, Franz Sales (because his fathers name is Franz "Anton").
OBWEGESER, Otto (because in the photo description it occurs the name "Mathis").
I mean PGV should search in this way normally: "Franz" AND "Anton" AND "Mathis".
With "Advanced Search" (with the attitude "exact") I get a good result. It has has only twelve people, and all with the name "Franz Anton Mathis".
I mean PGV should show this result with "normal (general) search".
"Advanced Search" is a good function. Maybe we get also in PGV a function for "Advanced Search" that excludes criteria. Such function is usefull, specially for large data bases.
