"ADD A NEW SOURCE" from ancestry.com - gets around the bad New Search Engine.

Hit on "Sources."

Then hit on "Add Source."

Then hit on "Add New Source."

Then follow what it says and add a source from ancestry.com. Be sure to copy the source address in ancestry.com and paste it in where it says, "Web Page URL," below.

    • Don, I was just about to add a similar comment to a post I made earlier (that I can't remember where):
    • A temporary solution to the new FamilySearch "search" debacle.
    • 1. Find the source on Ancestry, Find My Past, My Heritage, etc. 
    • 2. Post the source, and the info, to the Family Search PID manually or with Record Seek.  
    • 3. Return to the PID a few minutes later and look at record hints; the source you could not find using FamilySearch might very well pop up!  (Record Hints automatically seems to work better than the manual "Search")
    • (Check back & see if the FS similar source showed up in 'record hints' after you added it)
