Really struggling with the new format. Almost worth taking out a subscription elsewhere.

Same here Klouman can't get used to new changes  ;D

"the column heading that says 'Last updated'"

Yes, of course, that was the first thing I tried but, because of the way I have it organized, it takes me longer to update my to-do list that way.  The list is now impossibly long anyway so I probably just give it up.

I am still struggling with the new format. Not been using it much over the past few days other than mainly adding Scotland relatives I'm finding due to help from Rootschatters. No problems doing that.

I have sent messages to Familysearch expressing my opinion on the update.

Mick

ps Did Ancestry have a update also in the past couple days?
Jeffs - Northamptonshire to Leicestershire to Queensland, Australia
Lewis - Wales to Gloucestershire to NSW & Queensland, Australia
Iddols & Baylis - Gloucestershire
Mary Jones, daughter of James Jones and Eliza - born abt 1864 Staffordshire, died 1948 Queensland, Australia
Dorans - Ireland to Scotland to Queensland, Australia
Ralph - Ireland to Scotland to Queensland, Australia
Reedy - Ireland to NSW & Queensland, Australia
Bradbury (False name?) - Oxfordshire to Queensland, Australia

I am grateful for their free website but I'm struggling too! It seemed much simpler years ago the results seemed more specific. Even when I put Birmingham England I still get Alabama!!
