Has old search been discontinued?

No, I was using it a little earlier. The system, however, will try to force you into New Search. To get back, go to the "search" tab on the menu bar above, and click "search all records." On that page, there is a very small link in the upper right, just below the menu bar, that says "go to old search." Click that, and you're back in Old Search. Do that as often as you find yourself in the New Search mode.

Thanks for the responses. After submitting my query, I found the "old search" button. Then I found your responses - on the board with CURRENT comments. I submitted my query on a Ancestry Site Comments board where the newest query was dated 30 Sep 2012. I thought that was a large gap with no submissions. So it appears my comp has 2 Ancestry Site Comments boards. I'm thinking this is because of my new computer, unless someone else has a guess.

I need to visit these boards more often...

I prefer to search with "old search" only because I get better results with less cosmetics...

I bookmarked special boards of interest in "old search" view... but noticed when I went back to a certain bookmark, it took me to the new search... ?? I didn't ask for that...

As long as I can find the "old search" button I'm okay... just don't get rid of it!!
