We're still in early beta, and there are many improvements planned for search and other functions. The Muckety database doesn't yet include nicknames, so you'll need to enter either an exact match (Richard B. Cheney) or a partial name (Cheney). Typing in Dick Cheney won't give you any results. It's often best to search by last name.
If you want to search for connections between several names, type each into the search box, connected by + signs. For example, the above map was produced by searching for:
- Entourage+Ari Emanuel+Rahm Emanuel
In the list of search results, click each name you'd like to see. If they're connected, they will all display. If they're not, your first selection on the list will be mapped.
