Same problem for me this morning - just checked again and still the same.   Have duly emailed them about the problem.

No, I certainly wasn't!  ;D  As I said I was searching for a Curtis and when the results came up that came up as a suggestion in the tree bit. I only noticed it because of the strange name. I presume the Ancestry search bit just picked up on the Cu bit of the name. I wonder how many people will see it and "adopt" him into their tree?

I don't think so always prefer to do my own research with the original certificates rather than taking information from other tree's  ::)

Yes I think you are right. I've done several general searches tonight and the suggestions at the top have all been trees from the US, none remotely connected to the name or place I put into the search.

It's still happening. I've tested it with names I know should be there and just get nonsense answers.

The surnames do start with the same letter as the one I searched though.

Has any one reported this problem?
