Currently, I have to scroll down 100 at a time and then after processing that hint, it goes back to the beginning of the list.

I had over 1500 individuals in my other tree, and this one only has 217. Where is the rest of my family?????

Collins Sat, 14 Jun 2008 00:25:56 +0000 http://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/2007/12/20/ancestry-hints-%e2%80%93-new-and-improved/#comment-12802 I happened for the first time just now on this “blog” about “hints” in the “new” Ancestry member Tree (AMT) system.

After looking over most messages, there is a clear consensus that the “hints” feature in the new AMT system is highly defective: it’s slow and attaches junk to your file that is tedious to remove.

Contrast that with the “old” Online Family Tree (OFT) system. The hints feature in OFT allows one to search for related information. There is no automatic “merge” feature, but that is absolutely desirable when one wishes to view and evaluate each hint.

Readers should know that the “old” OFT system also makes your ancestry file available to the public–and not just to Ancestry.com subscribers.

I urge Ancestry.com to sustain the “old” OFT system for those who have found (and will find) it an effective tool for developing stand-alone genealogical ancestry files.

I don’t have any recommendation for improvement of the AMT system since it seems to be clearly so crippled in terms of utility and accessibility that I and many, relatively experienced developers of personal ancestry files would never use it.

Sincerely,

Gary Collins

Please address this issue, thank you.

Are we getting a new merge feature? This one has been broke for a long time.
