Since it was unveiled a few months ago, Ancestry.com’s new search experience has generated plenty of online commentary, much of it from people who had problems using it. At the beginning of July, director of product management Kendall Hulet told me 90 percent of people were still using the old search.
Looks like Ancestry.com is focusing on getting people comfortable with the new search interface. Geared toward intermediate and advanced researchers, the webinar will focus on how to use these tools:
- record previews
- image snapshots
- refined searches
- type-ahead features
- global searches
- advanced searches
- keyword searches
Hulet will do the instructing.
You don’t have to be a member of Ancestry.com to attend, but you do need to preregister at event.on24.com/r.htm?e=
