    I miss a lot because Ancestry has been messed up since July and it’s why many of us are not renewing. Instead of lip service, how about fixing the many problems a large segment of users are having first.

    Really getting tired of calling about little thing like not being able to remove a census report added in error, trying to add media to a entry and not being able to etc. etc. and being told it is because of the newest version of Internet Explorer? Fix it so it works or renewal will be a major decision for me. The wait today of 16 minutes for customer service does not help either.

    I have made all my trees private after finding that the photos and documents I was sharing for other researchers have been plastered all over Google. I know nothing we put on the internet is private, but I didn’t expect you to share it outside of this site. I also am annoyed that you no longer show me just who is copying my media to their trees. I used this as a resource for finding out who else was researching the same folks as I. And why can’t I pull up the profiles of people by using their user names?
