Ancestry.com NEW search function
I've given myself enough time to get use to the new ancestry.com search function. It is frustrating. Even when I'm looking at the census info at familysearch.org, Ancestry.com can't find it. After my initial search, with no results, I truncate the 1st 3 characters with an asterisk on the given and/or surname. When I do finally find it on ancestry.com and the two transcriptions are the same, It took ancestry.com a while and I use the advance search.
Every time an ancestry.com survey pops up, I tell them how bad the new search is and please bring back the "old search" option.
This new search is like the Library addition. It gives you every thin or nothing! frustration. frus
