  1. I am looking forward to the North Dakota State Census. As with other state census you have not posted a blank copy of the census for downloading. Can you please make sure a blank copy is at the website?

    Thank you,

  2. I would like to find burial permits or records of burials back in 1917. I would love to know where my gr grandpa is buried.

  3. It was nice that Ancestry.com has updated its newspapere collection, but I was disappointed that few of the new listings were useful to me. I would suggest that the following would be great for both me and a lot of other family historians because of the immigration and migration that took place in these cities.

    1. The Pittsburgh Gazette
    2. New Orleans Times-Picyune
    3. Rutland, Vermont Herald
    4. Boston Transcript (for those great genealogy columns)

    I know these are big projects, the I’m sure these papers have been microfilmed already because they are available in local libraries.

  4. Thanks for the added newspapers and I also enjoyed the New Orleans photos I had forgotten the December 1963 snow,I was about the leave for Basic Traning at Lackland AFB, San Antonio, TX. I would like to echo one commentor’s request for New Orleans Times-Picayune newspapers.

  5. I, too, would love to see New Orleans Picayune added to your list of newspapers. This would be extremely useful for my searches since I no longer live there and don’t have opportunity for genealogy trips very often. And I’m sure there are many in the same boat. This is the sole reason for me not subscribing to the historical newspaper collection!

  6. It would be great to have lists of Naturalizations in each of the states. There is a real need by genealogists for this information, which some states seem unable or unwilling to provide.

  7. I keep waiting for either the Houston(Texas)Chronicle or Houston(Texas)Post to come online at Ancestry.com as my ancestors have been here since 1850. Sure hope is on your schedule. Thanks for everything that you have online.

  8. I would like to see more records for Native Americans.There needs to be more about the Cherokee’s that stayed in the Missouri, Arkansas areas instead of going on to Oklahoma.These Cherokee lost their indian heritage by not going to Oklahoma and we need to know the names and original roll numbers of these people.We also need to know all the names of all the translaters and medicine men and women.There’s just not much about the Cherokee or any other tribe on Ancestry.

  9. I am happy to see the update on newspapers by Ancestry but wish Ancestry would publish old Boston and local town newspapers, especially the obituary notices. I would also like to see any death or buriel documents from 1780-1800.

  10. I would love to see the NY City BMD Microfilm which includes all it’s boroughs, placed on Ancestry. It contains a two step research process, first the index to find a certificate number and second to identify the roll containing that number.
    Another data base is the England BMD certificates aside from the free index you currently offer. As a US resident this is a very important tool. My experiences have been a hit or miss journey and a costly one since you can’t confirm the relationship until you receive a copy that may not be the one your looking for.
