New Navigation at FamilySearch: Flyover, Rotate & More

Familysearch added over 6 million new indexed records and 1.4 million new images since January 5, 2009, to its Record Search pilot.

Record Search visitors might also notice the following changes to the pilot site:

1. Region map flyover now lists the number of collections in a region

2. Rotate an image clockwise or counterclockwise in the viewer

3. New full screen view in the image viewer

4. Search form now displays the collection being searched

5. Image navigation- moved previous, next & go to buttons to the bottom of the page

6. Collection list page is now a single column

7. Image only collections are identified

8. Changes to print selected area

With the constant addition of indexes and digitized records, it's amazing they still find time to improve navigation. Kudos!
