I don't know exactly when the last changes were rolled out, but I can no longer find anything remotely relative to my searches. A search on Julianne completely ignored the multiple records where her name had been shortened to Julia, even though the city and birth year were the same. I have to go to other sources to find info, then come back to Ancestry and try to connect the record, even though almost no amount of manipulation of the search will locate the record I already know is there.

What exactly am I paying for if my search results ignore 75% of the valid records and I have to go outside Ancestry to find the data?
