I have just subscribed to MH Research and my very first subject highlighted an important lack in the system.
The lady's name is Jane Clyde Weir Medlow (Russell) so, guess what, eighty record matches, probably all from the United States, some for Jane Russell the film star; and I think for another lady of the same name.
I want the option to tell the system to please ignore information from the United States (or wherever).
I want to filter the information by country or by dates or whatever, preferably more than one criterion at a time.
I know my Jane was never in any other country, only Scotland and Australia.
If there already exists a filtering mechanism please tell me about it. I do NOT want the system to follow an automatic matching procedure, it's not working. I want to TELL it what to show.
It would take me nearly an hour to reject matches for this lady; probably none are about her. Let's say I have a couple of hundred similar matches, that is two weeks of full-time work, with more coming all the time.
n order to find records from a specific country, I would like to recommend you to refine your search by country / state / city by entering a location on the field(s) named: Place. You can also scroll down to the map and click on the specific country. This will rearrange the results placing the most relevant to the location first.

Okay, it seems that my previous comment was about the research heading of Newspapers and taking that into account I stand by what I said.
I have just spent some time with the next name, John Powell, and a promising UK census entry. Which could almost have been him except that his wife was born in County Cork, Ireland, and so was he.
The wife of the man in my tree was born in Wycheproof, Victoria, Australia, so I will reject the research match. But I would have liked the opportunity to put a note on the 'match' explaining that, so that no-one else makes the mistake that I nearly did. Which anyone could have done, not knowing the birthplace of the wife.
So, please, a place for comments, as we have in the SmartMatch system.....
P.S. It is just possible that it is the same man and his first wife died and the Wycheproof lady is his second wife... G
P.P.S. I would like to be able to 'reject all' record matches in a particular tree for a particular name.
I have rejected every match individually for my main tree and just want to click 'reject all' for the other tree. G.
