Problems of this nature are a lot more complicated to fix than one might assume. But we are making good progress.

I have an ancestor that served in that branch and from what I understand, was injured in Guadalcanal. Can anyone tell me what I might be doing wrong?

My family has asked me to enter WW I service informaton and picture for their father. During the webinar you told us how to go to the public member section. I went to that section, but could not find how to enter the information? How do I enter this information on an individual without creating an entire tree?

When is the problem with the draft cards going to be fixed? It has been years and Ancestry keeps moving to other projects.

“Note regarding the images for the states of PA, MD, WV, and DE. These four states were scanned at the National Archives facility in such a way that the back of one person’s draft card appears on the same image as the front of the next individual. The result is that when you click to view the original image, you will see the correct front side of the draft card, but the back of the previous soldier’s card. Ancestry is aware of this problem, and is working to correct this issue.

I would like to know WHEN, it’s been YEARS that Ancestry was aware of this problem so what is the hold up?

I would like to see this level of attention for future webinars as well. I think this is a great step in positively interacting with the community and letting them know they are being heard.
Keep up the hard work! :)
