I've been finding more and more as time goes by that Old Search is not working as well. For instance now in some of the U.S. censuses a birthplace for some but not all states will not have any hits at all. Try Maryland in 1850. Wildcard searches also pull up more errors despite the wildcard being within parameters. I still do not like New Search but have had to try it more to see what Old Search might be missing. At least with Old Search the hits were always relevant and I didn't scroll endlessly down the page. The first screen shot is from the original search screen and the 2nd is if you narrow by the birthplace. It pays to check New Search as well at least occasionally.
