Change in Merging 1860-1870 Post Offices.... Again....

A few weeks ago, Ancestry changed its protocol so as to merge the Post Office given at the top of each page of the 1860 and 1870 US censuses as a second Residence.

For years, I have entered the Post Office as an Address Fact; so I just ignored that Fact and still entered an Address Fact for the Post Office.

Beginning today, I am seeing the second residence fact is not being offered the user; but rather, the Post Office is being entered in the description of the Residence Fact for the census, like this:

"Age: 37; Census Post Office: Mattituck"

They are apparently discontinuing the text where they were adding the relationship of the person to the head of household in the description field, which they had started a few weeks ago.

They are apparently still not merging the occupation - what a pain the neck that is to add.
