findmypast.co.uk recently made radical changes to the site’s search software that has generated a lot of negative feedback from users. However, the site’s managers believe that the new search software is better even though it is quite different from the previous versions. With some understanding of how the new software works, users supposedly can find all the records they used to find and more.
The findmypast.co.uk blog now states, “The new findmypast search means that you can search across more record sets in a much more flexible way. Here, we provide some guidance to using the new search for broad searches or specific enquiries.” The blog article then provides step-by-step instructions for using the new search capabilities.
