  1. When I tried to check this out, it gets me to the general search index. It still shows these records as ‘coming soon’.

  2. I just tried to pull up the Wisconsin Death Index on June 22, 08 and it still shows as “coming soon”.

  3. So disappointed !!!! Tried to get at the Wisconsin Death Index today, 23 Jun 2008, and it just gets me back to ‘coming soon.’

  4. I don’t know why, but everytime you guys add a new database, the “Click on here…” never refers to the correct website! The last one for CA referred us to the Indian search site. Please, please test your websites before you publish them!
