Try an exact search with something more than the name, a location, for example. As BobNY states on another thread, this worked prior to Nov 22.

Some examples of the "exact" glitch in the function can be found on these threads.

Someone just posted this AM they were having problems with exact search in the 1900 US Census and posted a pic of it. That search was performed in New Search.
