Ancestry – Finally, We Can Sort by Collection Title Again!!

Yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised to see a “new” option (well, new to “new search”) available on my Categories search results page.  In the upper-right corner of the results section, there are now two links that you can toggle between to sort your results.

  • Name – Arranges the results in alphabetical order based on the collection title (really helpful when you are working with census records and want to go year by year). 
  • Results Count – Orders them by the collections with the most hits down to the least amount of hits.   


I have been waiting for this alpha-sort option since being forced to switch to “new search.”  This make me very happy.  Now if I could just eliminate the ten-step process to filter my results to where I want them, I’d be really happy!
