  1. I agree a lot with the comment to put all listings of databases in some type of order, because there are so many databases, and more are being added all the time. It is difficult and time-consuming to keep going through the list. Maybe you could have headings or sub-headings for different states and different countries and have those in some type of alphabetical order, then have databases listed under appropriate headings. It would be nice to have those alphabetized also, but we would settle for at least the countries and states to be alphabetized. Having more order in your lists of databases would be a huge improvement and asset to your site.

  2. Can something be done to the Immigration records…perhaps add a button so that the images can be rotated…and there are so many errors by transcriptionists it’s not even funny…British Columbia for Baja California? Come on.

  3. When looking up an ancestor’s name, it sure would be helpful if you could list at the top… how many records are included… Some of your records do show that but if I am looking up a name, and don’t know how many more pages I am going to have to sort through, I don’t know how much time to allow for searching. Thanks.

  4. The area that is the waakest is that of Irish records, due to many reasons.What would really be of help would be to have searchable on line the civil registrations of birch, marriage and deaths. It will not give you much but would be an invaluable beginning for sorting out the “Poosibles”.The GRO offices already have this but you have to go there and have them use it. They could increase their actual sales of certificaes immenslely if the indexes were widely available on line.

  5. While searching the 1930 census for Red River County, Texas, Precinct 6, I found three separate surnames that were grossly misspelled, which would make it impossible for anyone searching for those names to find them.

    Is it possible to make corrections for these names for future researchers? FYI Edmonds was spelled Echnonds, Faulkner was spelled Fantino and Mitchell was spelled Meictiell. The Mitchell family really got a hatchet job. Thanks.

  6. I have been trying to find a “nun” in the family who lived in Brooklyn, NY as a child from Germany late 1800s’. Do you or will you put any records on the computer to search for “nuns”.

  7. We were told several months back in the “COMING SOON” COLUME, that the New Jersey State census would be available soon. What Happened to them? at least 95% of my family were in NJ before 1800, and still there today. Can you give us a “about time” whjen the New Jersey State census will be available online. I have had your yearly Deluxe Subcription for 11 years now, and on the 3rd of this month I just renewed it, for $299.00. So it would be nice to get more Southern NJ newspapers, state census, court records, and wills online for us New jersey People. Thank you,

  8. There certainly is a disconnect between what the census indexers post for both surnames and given names, and what actually appears on the census page image. Perhaps they are overworked, but I do think that each and every page of indexing should be re-checked by another person.

    I preferred the old system where you could search the census indexes not only by state, but also by counties. I plead for you to return to that format, as it would make it much easier to search when a person KNOWS which county their ancestor resided in, or needs to search a specific county for a particular name.

    I love your Historical Newspaper Archives, but the search engine often missreads names/words that have a similar–but different–spelling. Can a more accurate search engine be employed? Also, I liked it when the Historical Newspapers hits were combined with the census indexes, as opposed to the “new and improved” version where they have to be searched separately.

  9. I second Debbie Orner’s comment. While not a member for as long, I too would like to see more on New Jersey.

  10. I also would like to see more New Jersey records on your site. Especially Hudson County. Railroad records would be great as well. I like the idea of showing how many people are on the list of names I am looking up. 1 or 500 makes a differance as to how much time it will take me to search. Thanks
