yes they did. I cannot search on the present format. It gives me too many unrelated searches and does not let me specify a record collection to check for results. If they do not change it back I will be forced to look elsewhere for my documents. I have been doing genealogy since 1991 and never seen a search format this terrible. Ancestry is even better and I have to sift through a lot of items there that don't match my search parameters. Least there they let me look at certain collections. I really do not know what to do if they don't make this search format like it used to be. It might just put an end to my genealogy research until I can find a good replacement for this site which now that they have reformatted the search format is totally worthless.
I've got the same problem. I do a lot of searching for people in my community and now everything has slowed to a crawl. It makes me not even want to use the site anymore.
