Ancestry.com supposedly made improvements to its site the other day or so ago. Now its new databases are no longer on its home page and the link is gone. This is a step backwards, because now to access only these databases, I now have to search the card catalog, making it harder to use.
Further, before they made their improvements, the Mass birth, death and marriage indexes, new databases, could be searched with a year, and with a plus 1-10 years. That now is gone. Why was it good to have? Because when the indices were scanned, much of the information did not scan correctly, and I have to search the indices by 5 year periods to cover all time periods in the databases.
