I’ve been out of the office for a bit so we have some catching up to do this week. A couple weeks ago, Ancestry announced that the Online Family Tree program that has been in use since 1999 is being phased out. But if you have data in OFT, it isn’t going away just yet. You’ll have until March 2008 to migrateÂ your tree(s)Â over to the newer Ancestry Member Tree platform that was launched in August 2006.
1/10/08 — Apologies for the incomplete sentence. In my haste to catch up, I must have neglected to proofread this post. I’d also like to apologize to Gary Collins, whose comments triggered the blog’s spam filter. We learned today that back to back links, without text between them will trigger the filter. I added some text between them and his post can now be read below. If you have concerns or questions about the upcoming change, I suggest you check out the Ancestry blog at the links below, and in Gary’s comment below.
