Sorry, we probably can't help much here, unless perhaps your great-grandfather is listed at this John Merrill page (click on the blue link). Wbm1058 (talk) 13:28, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

search fails if user is logged in on wikipedia
this search returns 40 hits if I'm logged off and zero hits if I'm logged in; bug? thanks. Fgnievinski (talk) 19:16, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
@Fgnievinski: Do you have "New search" ticked in your Beta preferences? That would explain the difference, as logged-out users are still running the old search.
The documentation at Help:Searching still describes the old search, so I don't know whether these changes in behaviour are intended:
The documentation says that "intitle: speed OR intitle: velocity" should be accepted as valid, but the new search is returning no results.
The documentation says that "intitle: speed OR velocity" should have the same effect, but this revised new search only returns 20 results with "Education research" in the title, none with "Educational results"
