The search function has recently been updated to enable searching on location.
You can also search for a place name on the internet.

Would you say the place name that you are interested in?
Of course as soon as I posted the question I found the "any keyword" option right at the bottom of the advanced search. However it would be more intuitive if there was a choice of SEARCH or ADVANCED SEARCH to get to https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:SearchPerson rather than having to do an empty search to get to that page.

I'm not sure what you mean. Do you mean that it is possible to search WITHIN WIKITREE using an ordinary search engine. That's what I would like. I also don't seem to be able to find a way to bring up a list of ALL the people I have added, regardless of their surname and how they link to my start person.

You do not need too search on Wiki Tree,Just put it on Google or

whatever Search you are using.I do it all the time.
Can someone give me an example, please. What would I put into Google?  "Wikitree Smallville" - something like that?
Put in Smallville and where located.
