I'd like to make a request that we revisit the tags for military records.
I was attempting to pull up all the questions with the tag navy because I have a question about Royal Navy records.
The search appears to redirect to showing me all the questions tagged military instead.
I DO NOT WANT THIS. I want only Navy records, which are going to be quite different from Army or Air Force records. So apparently I can't search by the tag. Annoying. What's the point of having a tag if you can't search for questions tagged that way?
I would also make a case that despite what Ancestry.com does, the Draft Registration cards should NOT be tagged as military records. If I were emperor of the universe, I would tag them with draft or selective-service. The reason for this is simple: in the USA, men who were already in the military did NOT have to register, so if they were already serving at the time the record group was created, they will NOT be found in any of the databases that have selective service records.
