It’s a waste of time and effort when it gives me names dates and places that aren’t even CLOSE to what I’m looking for. If it can’t be fixed soon, it’s time for me to move on.

I filled out a survey asking me about the Ancestry site and this was the most commented on. Bring back that OLD SEARCH please. I agree to all the previous comments regarding the wasted time trying to navigate and getting hundreds of names and states I am not asking for. I am very disgusted with these new changes/look!

I won’t speak about the search results because I can’t get over the useless change to the user interface! To change a name or other information you need to click on the Edit Search instead of just making changes in the field boxes, because there are no more field boxes on the results page! I frequently change the names or other information when I’m looking for information. Now it doesn’t even show me what I entered, e.g. marriage date. What if it was a simple typo? No, I really really don’t like clicking on “Edit Search” just to change a first name or add a birth year. I’m so glad I let my subscription lapse a couple months ago and not renew! How hard would it have been to simply ADD the slider feature to the other interface? I hope you fix this!

The comments above are awesome and I agree. I was a loyal customer as well and only used old search. Getting thousands of results when I am looking for something specific is ridiculous. New search makes me spend hours looking for things. I wish there were another game in town. I could go on, but y’all have covered it well. Just wanted to add to the growing list of complainers!

not happy with the new search function. Using you site use to be an
everyday experience. I now find that I use Ancestry ever few weeks.
The searching takes longer, I get random results and eventually leave
your site. Wanting a new copy of a record I copied from your site years ago, has become cumbersome and often I simply can’t find it. The
Function of reading/copying original books, is impossible to use as compared to before. Bottom line to Ancestry is that you were my go-to
site and I no longer visit you regularly. Please follow your customers advise.

Although some people may be impressed with getting 7 million records for a search, I am only interested in the 50 items that are applicable to my search. The new search is not “user friendly”. It is more work, less exact and frustrating. Give us our old search back!

I don’t like the sliders at all. Can we have the option to use either one? Thank you

Please bring back the old search. Researching was always fun, but not any more. I have been a member for 12 years and I am planning to cancel my subscription. Why keep it if I don’t use it any more. Ancestry is a pay site and ancestry needs to listen to the users.

The new search is no good!

I have been a member for 12 years and will hate to give up my membership which I will do if the old search is not brought back.
