Hi Aaron,
Thank you. It does work. I just found myself and my family. It's kind of cool to see yourself in a database with all the other Jewish refugees. We came to the US after the 1980s. You have to click on HIAS database search tab to search. 
Once you find one of the people this way, you can then type the "case number" in the results into the "case number" field, while erasing other criteria.  Search based on the case number will show all members of the family.

For some reason, I'm unable to find folks who came through in the previous immigration wave in the 1970's.  Perhaps, the data has not been made available yet?
