Search results have changed!

Hi everyeone

Something very frustrating has happened when you click on 'more results' in FTM in the past two days. Whereas before I used to get my usual hints and then lots more results when i clicked 'more results' i now only get 2 or 3 results.

In order to get more results i have to manually edit the search and take out middle names and sometimes all relationships in order to get results to show up.

Its very frustrating and up until this point I have been very happy with FTM but when it won't even link to something basic like a 1911 census and i have to take all information out simply to bring the record up, it makes me think its time to change software to something more reliable.

Nothing has changed in the way that i search for people and i don't have any 'exact' boxes selected when i search. Its almost as if Ancestry have changed the search parameters in the database to be more exact and its limiting the number of results you get back to the point of being prohibitive.
