Re: What's Wrong With Ancestry.com?

Hi Ed,
I've never had a problem using Ancestry before when it came to using their searches. But what has happened lately is that they completely did away with their Search by State features, which would bring up all of the databases for each state. When they did that, the only option you get now is searching through their Card Catalog, which is a mess; when you click onto it for North Carolina, for instance, you get over 8000 databases, most of which have absolutely nothing to do with NC, and you can't even get to some of the ones that used to be easily accessible when you try to find them. Even their own technicians have admitted they have a major problem and are trying to figure out what to do now. I've used Ancestry for years and have always had great success with their databases, but I refuse to plow through over 8000 databases trying to find the ones I want.
