Ancestry Problem
« on: Thursday 16 November 17 15:37 GMT (UK) »
When searching a person on Ancestry, the right results come up but when I go on to Family Trees...the trees don't match the person that I am looking for. Has anyone else had this problem?

See this thread I posted recently - nothing has changed for me.  Mine seem to be hint problems rather than tree problems though.

I am not having any problem with hints.

It is only looking for other peoples online trees.  What I could find yesterday is not working today.

Strange as I've just had this problem when looking for a Curtis born 1897 Nottingham, a suggestion for a tree for a Lester Clyde Cutsinger Moulds born 1910 USA came up.
