Not Exact, but it Matched

Put me down as confused.
This screen shot shows a search just conducted this morning on the "Illinois County Marriages, 1810-1934" database at FamilySearch.

My search was for a couple where one had the last name Tammen and the other had the last name Johnson. FamilySearch told me there were no matches that matched "strongly."

How do you get "stronger" than the same last names I entered?

  1. That always concerns me. I have been looking for some records I KNOW exist and it doesn't show them. I wish there was a way to be sure you were getting all the results that should be there.
