Today, Ancestry.comÂ launched a brand-new homepage that logged-in members will see the next time they visit the site.Â According to the Ancestry blog,Â
By combining the two pages into a single new home page, weâ€™ve reduced the number of clicks it takes you go get to the features you use most.Â You may have already noticed that since we combined the two pages, there is no longer a separate â€œMy Ancestryâ€ tab, or link in the header. All of the tools and features from the My Ancestry page can now be found on the new home page.
New sections will also keep you informed on new features and records added to Ancestry.com, and one feature I particularly like is the ability to create your own “Quick Links” to your favorite databases, record collections, message boards, and other pages you visit frequently on the site.Â You’ll also find your Shoebox items, Recent Activity and a new To-Do List to help you stay organized.
You can learn more about the new home page and submit feedback throughÂ this FAQ page that highlights the new features.
UPDATE 07 July 2008: Melissa Philips has posted a follow-up message in response to the feedback they have been receiving. In it she outlines some changes that are in the works for the new homepage. Click here to read her update.
