As you have likely noticed we launched a new version of the tool late yesterday afternoon. The first time you open the tool after we have made an update it will take a minute or two for the program to load.
Many of the changes we made are not noticeable but will make the tool run more smoothly. The most noticeable change in the tool is the addition of a difficulty rating for each project. We have rated the projects and categorized them as Very Easy, Easy, Average, Advanced and Very Advanced. So now when you are choosing a project to work on this will guide you in your choice to decide what you are comfortable with. Other fixes that have been made were to the international and arbitration aspects of the tool.
Because of your feedback we now have a much better tool and a better overall experience for all contributors. If you encounter difficulties with the tool please use the View Online Help option to view our Help articles. From this page you also have the option to “Email Ancestry Support” and reach one of our World Archives Project Support Team members.
