Searching Issue?

Is the site behaving strangely for anyone?

When performing a simple search I'm only getting returns for Newspapers & Publications and Stories, Memories & Histories.

This includes searches for family members I know are already listed and have been successfully searched.

I've cleared my cache - and tried three separate browsers. So, it's obviously not a browser issue-

Insights?

It appears to be bogged down. It's not just search; the hints system is bogged as well.

If you are in New Search, double check at the very bottom of the Advanced Search, to be sure that "historical records" is checked. See attached screenshot.

Even if you have never changed it, sometimes the search mechanism forgets.

That said, I've had some odd results earlier today, but not that one.

That seems to be it- however, I never before had to select those before.

Creates an unnecessary extra step.

Thanks for your help.
