Exact search is inexact
Get 'exact match' to work as expected. At present, a search for 'John Beare' may return occurrences of 'bear', 'bearing', etc., and also show 'John' and 'Beare' when they occur separately rather than together.
Improve the search facility so you can select a county of interest and obtain all publications within the county. You may not know the specific place of an event but can often narrow it down to a county. https://img.clippp.com/d18aba76ff2c26aec3b4c351094a8e1e_diy-angel-costume-plus-tutorial-and-pattern-scattered-thoughts-angel-costume-diy_514-720.jpeg
