Replacement of the Basic and Advanced Search Forms
The first thing you will notice is that there is no longer a basic or an advanced search form. The new form is simpler than the old basic form, but makes all the power of the advanced form, and more, visible and easily accessible to the user. The single search form allows you to see all the options available, all in one view. It allows you to click on search fields to open or collapse them as needed.
Searching with Multi-Events and Multi-Relationships
Your search results can sometimes be dramatically improved by searching on multiple life events or relationships. For example, this new form allows you to enter information about both the spouse and the parents along with a marriage date of an individual.
CAUTION: This new search capability comes with a warning. The more data you enter, the fewer record matches you will get in your results set. It is often better to start with the name and one or two pieces of information rather than using all the information you have. After evaluating your result set, add or change one or two pieces of information with each new search. This will increase the chances of getting the greatest number of records.)
The Batch Search is located on the home page
The Search by Batch Number field is now found on the initial search page. Click on the field to expose the field and enter your batch number information.
