How does that work then?

We will look into issues with the “Last Signed In” field. This date is calculated based on your last logged in visit to Ancestry.com, not your cookie.

#7 J.O. Street: You can find the two members you’re looking for by searching on their username in Member Directory. The “username” field is under the “Basic Information” tab. As a subscriber, you can contact them from the Member Directory search results page. Click on the username to open a window with a link to contact the member. You can then send the member a message through Ancestry.com’s online message center.

Much better.

The Latter Day Saints (AKA Mormon) site is not related to Ancestry.com. I haven’t a clue where this misinformation started. But folks, the use of the Family History Library or Centers is FREE! Even Ancestry doesn’t charge $365.

If you want to order (borrow) a microfilm or copy pages, there is a small fee.

Ancestry charges $299 for a World deluxe yearly subscription. $155 for just the USA, yearly.

The LDS has absoluitely *NOTHNIG* to do with Ancestry.

Please know what you are talking about before spreading incorrect information to the general public.

I think you need to offer the same structure when users are setting up “My Research Interests”? When clicking on “Add a new interest” users need to be presented with the same drop-down menus so ensure a better match.

The drop-down County menu for Wales provides the users with both the “old” (pre-1974); “short-lived” (1974-1996) and “new” (post-1996) counties. However, those for England and Scotland only appear to list the pre-1974 counties???

On topic, I tried “Livermore” in the USA. 163 results, and no way am I wading through that. 2 pages worth is all I needed to determine the utility of this service.

I actually signed every day THIS week. I am not sure these things are accurate.
