I have a problem using the Family Search site.
If one selects, for instance, marriages you rarely get a result.
However if you select All Records & then after refine them by selecting
marriages one gets a much better result.
I don't know why - unchecked programing I suspect
I am using IE7 + latest Flash Player.
