Hello 2010 Search Beta Group,

My name is Dave Menninger and I've been with for about 5 years on the website product team. Right now my focus is on the's search functionality. We're currently trying to understand what makes Old Search so valuable for Old Searchers. We've initially consulted several people internally who have frequent contact with our customers and we've studied a detailed report about Old Search produced by an consultant and professional genealogist who is intimately familiar with Old Search and continues to value and use it.

To help us understand some of the issues we've created a script for Firefox web browsers which simulates some key aspects of Old Search (but within the New Search framework).

If you are a fan of Old Search or use it regularly, we'd like you to try out this simulator:
(Firefox is required; kindly do not post or re-distribute this link.)

Once you’ve had a chance to try the simulator, follow the link in the simulator to give feedback about the simulator and how you use Old Search.

I look forward to hearing your reactions and valuable insights.

Dave Menninger Product Team
