Effective 22 July 2013, FamilySearch has changed the search results on the Search FamilySearch Records section of the site. The new design presents not only The Records found in a search but also the Collections that contain results based on your search parameters.
Let’s look at an example. I searched for David Drew in Massachusetts. The search results under the new ‘Records’ tab include 1239 hits.
When I click on the Collections tab, I now see the list of FamilySearch Collections that contain information about David Drew’s in Massachusetts.
The presentation of the results in the new format is a great help to researchers both in readability and in the listing of the related FamilySearch Collections.
Search for your ancestors and give the the search results a try. Hopefully, they will help you find records about your ancestors.
