The search engine is next to useless. If I want to find a marriage between two people, for example, and enter the names, I get a long list of completely irrelevant results with the groom's name as the father of the bride/groom and a list of names as the possible spouse. Other searches yield similarly unhelpful results. Don't waste your time. The free version of ancestry.com is more useful.

In summary, I would not recommend Family Search to a friend.
