John,

Before having a discussion on how EXACT search "should" work I believe it would serve everyone to have a detailed, in-depth discussion of how EXACT search presently works.

My feeling is that we can't really know what results we can get until we know how it presently functions. Once that is understood, then, and only then, can we understand what possible changes are needed to get us the results we really want.

I will add one thought- on a GLOBAL search the use of EXACT should be limited to only those fields that are common to EVERY database in ALL of Ancestry's collections.
