Ancestry Searches

Interesting to note that a name search carried out specifically in Ancestry Land Tax Redemptions 1798 finds the person I want, but a general search with same data doesn’t even find the Land Tax records

Sometimes selection criteria stuff gets lost - it starts out in one selection box, as it were, and you'd expect it to stay there as searches are refined, but an intermediate search level puts it into a different search box.

Ditto the Silver War Badge records from WW1. Even a search on all military records does not seem to bring them up.

Yes, I have to find them in the A-Z list first, not least because I can't remember which higher level category they are in.
