July 2018

Search system improvements

The GPR full name search has been improved.

The changes to the full name search routine has meant that is now possible to display the results in a variety of different orders. To use these different displays, simple click on the column heading at the top of the search result list.

The full name search routine now has the option to restrict the search to just the exact name entered. This is useful if you are getting too many search results for a specific surname.

If you have been research a particular surname then you can now easily check to see when the latest additions for that surname have been made. To see this list just click the column heading date added.

The search results based upon the location of the cemetery have now been extended so that they can be displayed in country, county/province/state and location (village/town/city) order.

The search results can now also be displayed in decending year of death, age and year of birth. However, these results currently only return the lists using the actual dates and age stored on the database. Calculated dates and age, shown in RED, are not used.
