I am in communication with Ancestry – to no avail – about the problem. I have over 700 hints but I cannot find them unless I review individually all of the 4000 people on my largest tree. No doubt, many of these hints will be completely inappropriate. (I should point pout, in Ancestry’s defence, that I have 2 separate incidents of cousins marrying in which case, the maiden name of the wife is the same as the married name). that aside, many Hints are completely useless. I would like to be able to mark people as not needing Hints. Whilst I am happy to add them to my tree as siblings or spouses, I have no wish to pursue their lineage.

Gill

I’ve called and sent numerous emails about the “ghost hints” with screen shots. It gets “cured” for a while, but “it’s baaack”!
Oh well, I really hate to complain, because the information I’ve found on this site without leaving the comfort of home is truly amazing.

So do not feel alone! And the silliness of it is that many times the hint takes me to my own trees.

I did find it interesting that Crista said “without a high degree of certainty – not going to send hint”, which made me wonder even more about some of the “hints” I’ve gotten. This is a portion of a post I wrote on an older blog a while ago thinking “old search” had finally been removed: “I somehow got into that horrible “NEW SEARCH”. I dread the day that it will be all we have, but that doesn’t explain some of the ridiculous “hints” I’ve been getting for people. Documents that have no connection to the person as far as I can see, unless I’m missing something. For example, a marriage record “hint” for a woman, and the only connection is her maiden name is the same as the groom’s surname! Another problem I’ve had off and on with “hints” for almost a year now. Namely, going to my list of people and seeing 15 “hints”, but when I check them out, there are none!
