The FAILURE of ALTERNATES and BETA REVIEW FORM

Riddle me this, Ancestry.

I reviewed some of the record transcriptions that I had previously submitted alternates for.

In the examples I've attached, the alternate I submitted in 2011 was to a member, not the head, of the household.

The alternate is clearly defined, it's green, hyperlinked and has the pencil to indicate it can be clicked for more info about the alternate. All is as it should be.

No other member of this household was "checked" to be included for the alternate submitted. I state this with 100% certainty.

Today's review revealed, all the other members NOW have the alternate surname in their individual records, but *notice* the alternate is black, no hyperlink, no pencil. These *alternates to nowhere* appeared within the last year. I'm concluding these are system created, a programming debacle.

But wait, the cherry on top is the exciting and improved beta review form gives the *option* to include a completely false and system generated alternate.

The continual degradation of this site is maddening.

It was aptly stated by ludlowbaylive on another thread,

"So .... the slop will continue to pile up, ad nauseum."
