Our data center provider performed routine maintenance on their infrastructure between midnight and 6am Saturday morning. Due to some unexpected issues that arose related to this maintenance, we took protective actions to take a bank of servers offline. Other companies hosted in that facility did the same. As a result, parts of our Ancestry sites were down from 1:05am to 5:45am MST on Saturday morning while the servers were being brought back online.
Sorry for the delay in getting this information out to you as well as any inconvenience this may have caused.
