Re: Ancestry

Hi Ellie,

Just gave Ancestry a try. Automatically signed in. What did come up was,
your customised home page is temporarily unavailable due to high traffic on Ancestry etc.

Re: Ancestry

I logged in Ok.....the message I got, was a 40% discount for a years subs.

As my subs are now cancelled, perhaps they want to entice me back.

That's the reason I cancel every time my year has finished 40% off, I took them up on their offer, it was worth it

Re: Ancestry

The site had been acting a bit strange in the last few days. I guess it's more 'maintenance'.

I have notice a banner on top of my home page,(once I have logged in), that asks.....'Where would you like to start today'............but it never loads.

Plus.......'Recent Member Connect Activity'........'Corrections (in all languages)'. Never seen that before.

Continual faffing and meddling with the site, makes it a whole unsatisfactory experience.

Usually, clearing all cookies and history does the trick, but not lately.

Re: Ancestry

My recent experience is that I'm logged in and for some unknown reason the whole system closes down after about an hour. This only happens with Anc - I thought some-one was picking on me?

Re: Ancestry

I have noticed that sometime when I search I've been taken away from the site. One minute I have the black strip with the Home, Trees, search etc at the top, then the black strip disappears and I'm looking at the old strip at the top and none of these options

Re: Ancestry

I tried today to find a census. I put in the correct details (as per the transcription)

given name
age - set to exact
RD
Sub-RD
Piece - set to exact
Folio - set to exact
page - set to exact

and returned zero hits.

I removed the piece, folio, page and Sub-RD and added the wrong surname (ie the one that was transcribed) and the record was returned.

For this one I knew what surname to enter but for others I didn't. I found others by using the servant's name.
and found PENFOLD transcribed as ROMFORD, GENFOLD and KENFIELD.
