What do you think of following:

1. Include an intervall for birthdays and deathdays
2. Alternative birth- and deathplaces or developed filter

Hi

Regarding the search function in Talko there is already a possibility built in where you can search for the birth year OR the birth year +/- 3 years etc.

Have you tried this?

The same works for death years.

Regarding the alternative birthplace thing... Didn't really grasp what you meant? Did you, for example, like to make a query for a person born in Kronoby or who died in Kronoby???

This would be possible - if you use the OR operator.

Alf: it should be a way to reduce the data - birthplace 1 OR birthplace 2

This would be possible - if you use the OR operator.

Today you may enter one or several words or word parts into a search field. This reduces the number of hits. This is an AND function. Usually with OR -functions you end up having more hits.
