Research Recommendations: FamilySearch.org Problems

As part of moving content to the new FamilySearch.org website, the Family History Library Catalog was recently launched on the new site. While at the library teaching at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy a couple of weeks ago, we discovered a major problem with this new catalog. It is incomplete, a situation which the development team is working to address.

 

On the home page of the new FamilySearch.org is a link that says “Go to the previous site.” Click on that link and use the catalog on the old site for your searches. Unfortunately, that site is only being supported modestly, and will often run slowly and with problems. Despite those frustrations, it is better to use that catalog to ensure that you have the best knowledge of what is available through the library. Hopefully this problem will be fixed soon.

Michael, can you describe what parts of the "Catalog" are missing?
