The Member Directory lets you search public profiles of other members on Ancestry.com. In the past, the search was limited to one category. If you wanted to find an advanced researcher who lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is focused on the Schultz surname of Western European descent, and speaks German… well, you couldn’t easily do that.
With the updated Member Directory, now you can. From the Collaborate tab, select Member Directory. Then choose exactly the criteria you’re looking for, whether it falls under Research Interests, Basic Information, and Experience – or all of the above.
You can also now search for members by their username in the Basic Information tab.
