NEW STYLE IGI – GOOD OR BAD.
I don’t know if anyone else dislikes the newest setup of the International Genealogical Index, but I do.
I seemed to have a lot more success with the old style, finding ancestors I was looking for, place details which would help me in my search.
Going back over some old family history research I re-checked it and if I had obtained the details from the old style IGI, sometimes I just didn’t get the same information coming up with the new style.
To begin with we were given a choice of new or old but that choice seems to have been withdrawn now and I for one am not a happy bunny!
As I have mentioned before, every so often I like to recheck my information and when I don’t get confirmation that sets me wondering whether I just dreamed the first details. I know I didn’t because I always take a note of where I got family history research information so that I can re-visit the appropriate site.
Maybe I am missing something here, perhaps I am doing something wrong but I cannot imagine what. Has anyone else been a bit disenchanted with the changes?
