I have a different problem in that I am searching the surnames of Vincent and James.  Even though I carefully place James and Vincent in the surname box I get everyone with James and Vincent anywhere  in their names and there are soooo many.
James -Victoria, Australia originally from Keynsham, Somerset.
Heale/Hale - Keynsham, Somerset
Vincent - Illogan/Redruth, Cornwall.  Moved to Sculcoates, Yorkshire; Grass Valley, California; Timaru, New Zealand and Victoria, Australia.
Williams somewhere in Wales - he kept moving
Ellis - Anglesey

My mother-in-law was Mary Love.  I get everything to do with love. I mistakenly put Looking For Love family into google. Got heaps of information on different webs sites to try not one of them had anything to do with the surname i was looking for

Try

DONOUGHER. with all its variations and combinations. Lancashire/Liverpool based and lots of information, but I wonder what I may have missed by spelling complications.

OH's family name is the same as a Yorkshire town, so newspaper searches bring up dozens of irrelevant results.  (I haven't yet found a link between the family and the town.)

One of my lines has the name of a farm animal, which brings up some interesting agricultural information but nothing of use to me.

Another one of mine is PRIOR ................................................... ::)

For me it's William Wood from Scotland.  Have no clue where in Scotland, I only know he's from Scotland because of the burial entry at the cemetery where he's buried (just outside of Toronto).

Side note:
