I saw this again yesterday. There was no indication in the result that there had been some user-suggested correction; the names were completely unrelated, except for Soundex equivalence. I have not done much of that type of searching today.

Around the same time the original post was made here, also got weird results with exact-search place (using drop-down) Clearfield County, Pennsylvania. The only results I got were for Bradford and Lawrence Counties. Was looking for a US Census item. Have not seen this again.

If I run into it again will post screenshots and URLs.

With all the other systemic glitches since last Thurs., possibly the above were seen while someone was making adjustments.

Thanks for your response, John.
