Updates to FamilySearch’s search experience now make it easier to refine searches, find record collections, and standardize dates when you attach them to people on Family Tree.
Many FamilySearch users looking for records start on the Search Records page, which is found by clicking Records in the Search drop-down menu on the home page of FamilySearch.org. To use the Search Records page, you fill out one or multiple boxes with information such as an ancestor’s name, birthplace, or birth year, and click the Search button for a list of results.
A few improvements now make the search experience better:
- Search for multiple relationships within historical records.
- Refine your search without having to return to the original search page.
- More flexible “Find a Collection” searches.
- Automatic standardizing when attaching records to the Family Tree.
