I've been told by Ancestry.com that I need to search databases separately.
What is the point of a global search if I have to search each database one by one?
I also got a mild lecture from Ancestry.com on how Boolean searches work in one of my emails about this topic. I don't need lectures on Boolean logic---I want the search to work.
I endured Dr. Welch's lectures on Boolean logic while an undergrad at Western Illinois University in Macomb. Actually they were fine lectures and I also worked my way through a year of abstract algebra and a semester of real analysis in graduate school--lectures on how to construct Boolean searches are not what I need. I need searches that work.
