I also agree... the results need to be better - I'd rather see all the names spelled like the one I searched before the names that don't even sound the same.

I've had to resort to looking through each and every page of a census in a town to find an ancestor only to find them listed there!

Would also like the results to be sortable - for instance if I'm searching in NY, list all the NY names first before the ones from California or Washington on the opposite side of the country. I've waded through 30 pages of results to get to the NY listings where they simply had the name spelled wrong [Hennessay instead of Hennessey].

UGH!
