Stores & Publications name search problem

Posted: 9 Oct 2012 5:36PM GMT
Classification: Query
Does anyone else have a problem in searching this portion of ancestry?
I'm doing some research on Nickey family. When I fill in name fields of first name John, surname Nickey, I get no hits. But if I leave those empty and use keywords "John Nickey" in quotes, I get 418 hits in newspapers and 25 hits in stories.
If I just fill in Nickey as surname, first name left blank, I get 1 newspaper.
It seems it is just the Nickey name that is doing this.
I can't figure this out.. anyone else have a problem with specific names?
(I'm not looking for info on this person, just addressing the search problem).
Ancestry.. if you read this, any helpful hints would be appreciated.
