Dave Robison reblogged this on Old Bones Genealogy of New England and commented:

Michael Hait is a well known, well respected Certified Genealogist (CG) who has appeared on many popular programs including "Who Do You Think You Are." His post, I felt was so well written, that rather than rewriting the obvious, I'd reblog his post. I couldn't agree with him more. I've been using "New Search" at Ancestry.com since it broke out about 2 or 3 years ago. I have no problem with it at all. The latest tweaks simply make it better in my opinion. See what Michael has to say and the comments that should come along with the post.
