Can matches be eliminated by adding a location?

+3 votes
I would like to search for family using not only dates, but locations.  When searching for family members, the results can be in the thousands.  I would be able to eliminate a lot of the names if I could search with a location (i.e. only Adams from Maine).

Yeah, I'd love it if the search results included dates, too, with the most likely candidates up top. This would be true for finding merge candidates as well.

Improving the search is a high priority item for us. We are planning on having more options soon in terms of different fields like dates and locations.

In the meantime, sometimes it's helpful to use the Google search on the search page (at the bottom where it says search for anything). For example, searching for Adams Maine brings up a bunch of people with the last name Adams in Maine. I know it's not as helpful for finding duplicates, but I sometimes find it helpful.
