To find the search page for the book, here is a workaround:

1) Switch to OldSearch (as long as Ancestry.com still allows this) using the teensy-typeface link at upper right
http://search.ancestry.com/search/default.aspx?new=1

2) Scroll down and click on a link to Card Catalog

3) Use the keyword search or the alphabetical links to find the book title, right click on it to open in new tab or window

4) Perform your search. You could design your search terms to get results for more than one person. In this case you can right-click on each result link to get to the book page for that person. In any event, right click on the search result to open in new tab/window.

5) Then you can return to the initial search-result page to modify your search to pick persons with other names.

Not all books/publications have particular search pages for them, oddly enough. And there are large groups of such things as the Gale Research cluster of USA-midwest County Atlases and County Histories which are only browsable.

Hope this helps a bit. Use the same link given above to switch back to NewSearch if you wish.

NewSearch sometimes makes it needlessly difficult to search specific databases.
