  1. Is anyone else having problems with the link from the main http://www.Ancestry.com webpage in the section titled:

    “What’s New on Ancestry
    See recent website additions”

    I can’t seem to find a link from their site that brings me to the New sites or even the old Newly added databases page that now displays only updated databases.

    In order to find it, I have to come back to this blog and search for the post where Juliana originally posted the correct link. It would be nice if Ancestry would fix that link on the main page.

  2. I have the same problem. Quite by accident I learned that if I turn off Ad Blocking on Norton Internet Security, I can get to that page and actually see what is on it. I don’t think it is a Norton issue because I have the 2005 version of it on my laptop and have the same problem. But whatever, it is an issue and I, too, wish Ancestry would fix it.

  3. PS — I just tried Nancy’s solution and it does work. That confirms that it is an Ancestry issue and not a Norton one.

  4. PS #2 — I went to the link from the blog, bookmarked it, and now can get easily to the recent databases from this new bookmark. Still think the link from recent web site addition should be fixed.

  5. Thank you Deane for confirming that I am not the only one having the problem. I don’t have Norton Internet Security or Ad Blocking so that can’t be the problem.
    I am also unable to view the “What’s New” page.

  6. After you go to the What’s New page, look on the left side under the Recently Added Databases and you’ll see a small link that says “See all recent databases” — just above the Records Coming Soon section.

  7. Neither can I. I get a page with the masthead, so to speak, and nothing else unless I turn off Ad Blocking on Norton.

  8. Where can I access the new databases on Ancestry? Your site is getting hard to nagigate anymore. I chose Ancestry because the site was easy to use ….. anymore it is very confusing.

  9. Deane, I found a FAQ in Ancestry’s Help database related to problems viewing the What’s New page.

    “What’s New on Ancestry” Won’t Display

    (Search the Help database using the words “What’s ew”.)

    I tried their suggestion (to ad Ancestry’s adserver to the trusted sites list in IE) but I still can’t view the page.

    I was wondering if you’ve tried this yet?
