Search and System Glitches
Noticing lots of search errors and omissions. 1. Search parameters not working for location or age ranges. Example: Enter a foreign country and receive results for USA. Enter an age range and receive results for all ages.
2. Searches fail to display known ancestors in family trees. Example: If I enter my gg grandfather's name, birth date, location to perform a search, and his name on my Family Search tree never appears in search results, then using Family Search loses credibility re quality control, accuracy, and value.
3. Log in, perform search, review a family tree with similar name, then backtrack, click on "family tree" in header and display is family tree previously viewed during search - does not return to family tree established by user. Logging off and logging back in, clicking on tree again displays another tree, not user's tree.
4. What used to be two clicks to view data now takes five clicks. Very cumbersome.
Users (old and new) should have a more intuitive interface. The older version was more intuitive, logical and credible then newer version. If entering known data from a tree (i.e. first, last name, birth date, location) and the ancestor does not display in results, then search credibility is questionable.
