Assuming that you did them both at the same time then you can’t be entering the same parameters as the plugin is

 

I would suggest running the plugin and then compare what it has submitted as the search compared with what you would enter

 

Sometimes we try to be too explicit

 

If you search a specific set but it searches elsewhere it might have found the BT version which is in a different records office

Subject: [family-historian] Find My Past hints

 

Can anyone explain why FMP hints via Family Historian  sometimes produce superior results over the same data entered into the normal FMP search page?
For instance, FH hints offered an image in addition to the transcription from the Yorkshire Baptisms record set which is unavailable when the same record set is accessed via the traditional FMP search page - only the transcription is available. Have Calico Pie negotiated some augmented records access?

Thanks
Brian
