Comments on: New at Ancestry… http://blogs.ancestry.com/uk/2010/06/18/new-at-ancestry/ The official Ancestry.co.uk blog Sun, 05 Oct 2014 09:45:07 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.5.2 By: Denisehttp://blogs.ancestry.com/uk/2010/06/18/new-at-ancestry/#comment-340 Denise Thu, 01 Jul 2010 10:26:56 +0000 http://blogs.ancestry.com/uk/?p=751#comment-340 In response to # 13, Larry’s “Should there be a note on a death record of what became of the deceased?”

I can’t see how that is possible. In UK, the GRO indexes only give the details passed to the ONS, to enable you to order the death certificate, and the Parish burial records are transcribed as they are seen. Admittedly there could be some transcription errors. If the information isn’t given on them, then it is up to us to make further enquires with the Church, or Local council’s cemetery/cremation records. The alternative would be to add a section where additional information (unrelated to the transcription) can be added by users, in the hope that other researchers have found the information from the suggested sources.

My beef is that Baptism data base of records assume that the date of baptism is the date of birth…NOT! Unless one is vigilant and have looked at the image before attaching, one can end up with an incorrect dob.

This is probably the wrong place to state the above, but at least it has been aired.

How about a price reduction on the subscription rates to celebrate. Many are finding the costs are too high and can’t continue their memberships

Should there be a note on a death record of what became of the deceased? Its so f’n hard, pardon my french, to track where dead people ended up.

Also the Census for 1931 was destroyed during WW2 but in September 1939 a WW2 National Register was compiled.

I agree with bromaelar and would appreciate the census dates to be automatically added.

I would also appreciate a description box to appear when you attach a birth, marriage or death so you can add the register detail at the same time without having to go back once it has been saved. Finally when you find a Baptism, Military record etc it would be good to be able to attach it to the proper heading and not under residence as it defaults to.
