Tutorial for new search format?
I have been a family search user for many years. I also help with indexing as often as I can.
The new search format is just awful. I have never been so frustrated trying to figure something out before. Records that I know are out there, seem to have disappeared in thousands of unrelated records. I didn't use to have to search through so many pages to find records before. I am seeing that it is here to stay.
Is there a tutorial somewhere for using it? I need to figure out how to stop spending hours trying to find sources for my ancestors that I have printed out and sitting right beside me, yet I cannot attach them to anyone, because I can't find them here.
@Brenda Becker_1 The new Search format is still in testing phase--only about 10% of users currently see it. The developers are actively seeking your feedback. So, when you click Search and then Records, look for a white Feedback button and click it. Depending on your browser and screen size, it will either be along the right side of the page or in the lower-right. Let the develpers know what parts of the search are frustrating you.
Help content is being developed for the new Search, but has not yet published. Until the change is seen by more of our users, we won't publish the "how-tos". Meanwhile, if there are specific things we can help you figure out when you use it, feel freep to post here and folks who have been using it are sure to have tips.0
