New Search:Six months later
I had really hoped that some even minor improvements would be made to the 'New and Improved' search.
It is still a nightmare, I have looked at and read all the how to information, I have spent innumerable hours looking for information that I could have found in less than 5 minutes in August 2021.
I no longer search for records before creating a profile. I add a person and then hope that if I come back to them several days later, that some records will pop up.
Even if I search from an existing profile the results are still garbage.
You need to have the entire search form available from the beginning. The results need to reflect the information entered in the search form.
If I enter born in Lancashire England, lived in Lancashire England, married in Lancashire England, died in Lancashire England, I don't want or need results from North America. And when I enter a spouses name and or parents names I don't want results for other names.
I would like to be able to pick results categories from the list of results, but I can't I have to go back to the search form, re-enter info, wander around until I can find something that seems to make sense, however it often doesn't.
I have been involved in family history research for over 10 years and have never been so frustrated.
