Ancestry seems to be trying again and I hope that they have finally gotton the message. However if they do not change both the new search page and the search engine, this will prove to a temporary fix. Please ancestry listen to those of us who have supported you for the past 10 or so years.

This is a worthless blog. This stuff is normally posted on the front of the new and wonderful HOME PAGE!!!

Ancestry’s attempt to bury the complaints?

Could you tell me if there has ever been a new ancestry database done on immigrants over to New Zealand in the 1800′s from Ireland and England as I am trying to trace the families of Gilbert Stevenson 1784-1853 & his wife Fanny Stevenson (nee.Scott )
They had a Grandaughter Fanny McClurg who erected a headstone for Gilbert Stevenson’s grave which is in Ganaway,Northern Ireland

The list of what’s been added in the last 2 months is here

Just click on one database to search it.

It includes books from the database.

The Home Page does not list what has been most recently moved.

I am disgusted to find that BRITISH church records are now only available if I upgrade. They were available in the past and not only have you increased subscriptions-you have downgraded the facilities. Ancestry best site? You must be joking.
I am only putting this on a blog because I cannot find any other way of contacting you

I am sorry I couldn’t find a more recent blog on new U.S. content added to voice my complaint. It has been almost 2 months since any new records for the United States have been added. Enough with the new Canadian records for a while and give us some new records for the United States.

HELP! I have been trying to find some contact for a question that I cannot find addressed under the help sectiuon. Could you please forward this along to whomever would know the answer to this question?
My question is this: How do I like branches of my tree when the same person appears more than once? Example: I have an ancestor who married her husband’s uncle after her 1st uncle’s death. As such, all of the children down stream are related twice by blood. However, I cannot figure out how to connect these two branches of the family tree. Can you help?
