"New" New Search Coming to Ancestry.com
Posted by Diane

You might be happy to learn about some changes in store for Ancestry.com's New Search, particularly if you’re using the Old Search in hopes something better than New Search will come along.

During last week’s Ancestry.com press junket, Tony Macklin, manager of the search experience, gave members of the genealogy media (listed at the end of this post) a sneak peek of the updates:

The global basic search form will keep the first and middle name field and last name field. The place field will ask “Where did your ancestor live?” A pop-up calculator helps you estimate the birth year. Options let you add family members’ names and life events.

The global advanced search form is where you’ll see most changes. For the above-mentioned name fields, you'll be able check boxes for filters that let you customize the types of matches you get: records with just initials for the name, just Soundex matches (a feature the professional researchers in our group sorely miss in the New Search), and names with similar meanings or spellings to what you entered.

For the location, filters will let you restrict matches to records associated with just the county or place you entered, or also from adjacent counties/places.

You’ll be able to click boxes that let you restrict matches to just the historical records databases, just family trees or just photos and maps—effectively doing the same thing as the tabs in the Old search. You’ll be able to limit your results to US sources, too.

The updates will be introduced gradually in the New Search over the next weeks and months. The Old Search will stick around for now, but it won’t get these changes.

Individual collection pages also will get updated searches, but this'll take longer because of the customization required. Redesigned collection home pages will feature links to collection categories, easier ways to browse by location or date, and an “Explore by Location” click-through map that lets you see record groups associated with your ancestors’ places of residence.
