On the https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:SearchPerson page, there is a "Search for Any Text" section. However, I can't restrict that to just my watchlist. Is there a way of doing that?

Look at the bullets lower on that page, you can choose:

Search all of WikiTree?

only my Watchlist  

only outside Watchlist

Those options only apply to method 1, "Search for a Person". The only options for method 4, "Search for Any Text", are (1) All WikiTree pages, (2) Categories, (3) Images and (4) Help pages (just tested it myself there).

The functionality you are asking for doesn't currently exist, Paul. I added "improvements" as a tag on your question, since this is basically a request for an improvement.

What are you trying to search for? (The tech team might want to know this...)
Hi Ellen,

As an example, I was visiting Glasnevin Cemetery in Dublin and wanted to search my watchlist for anyone with the word "Glasnevin" used in it.
