You might not notice it, but last week I enhanced the Whipple Genweb search results page very slightly. Now, when you search for a common name (like "John Whipple" or "Sarah"), the search results are sorted by name. Prior to last week, the "hits" were displayed in a more or less random order. I hope you like the enhancement.
If a search produces no hits, the search results give a few pointers for improving your search.
You can try out the search at http://genweb.whipple.org/search.html.
Let me know if you think of other enhancements. (I can't promise that I will respond in a timely manner. ... But if you ask, I will try to think of a way to implement the enhancements.)
