I challenge you to find instances of the string Eikenboom in the Edit Person screen on any sort of quick and easy basis, especially if the string is deeply buried as a fact citation for person with a lot of facts and for a fact with a lot of citations.
Find Everywhere itself does a better job if displaying such found strings for you than does the Edit Person screen, but too often Find Everywhere does not leave you in a position where you can do the editing you need to do based on having found the string.
Jerry, we are both skirting around a problem within the current build of RM. My wish came from the "too often" Find Everywhere scenario you correctly highlighted, my thinking was that if I validated the Find Everywhere matches and selected them for a group at least I know these selected entries, in my opinion, are worthy of further research and comparison.
I usually use Timeline view for comparisons and I have also wished for multiselect of individuals for a multipane Timeline comparison View.
The fictitious Eikenboom group would only have individuals I was happy with and selected from the Find Everywhere results so worthy of my further research whether they are mentioned in an obituary or will, I can remove them from that group if I disprove a connection.
I yearn for improved data mining techniques and yes that includes event proximity regardless on personal text recording techniques. I watched two television programs this past week where proximity was an important indicator and a further one on the history of mapping mainly by Britain and France. In 1913 34 nations got together and agreed standards to create an International Map of the World and today, over 100 years later, we genealogists still struggle with that standard and are not in agreement
As we struggle for links these important tenuous become more important and need methods of bringing them to the surface.
