I am looking for a Joseph Wilson.  I don't know his birth date, only the date and place his will was probated.  There are too many Joseph Wilsons to wade through.  Could we add the option to search by Death Date?  Lots of times, that is much more certain than a birth date.

I would just like to chime in and also encourage the addition of Deceased Date to the Find Ancestor Match screen.  Currently only birth date can be specified and that is troublesome in older records.

As dates are already normalised it should be relativly simple to add searching by any date including marriage, I would think. I know there is a plan to normalise places to allow searching by places and that may be a lot harder.
