Incorrect Ancestry images
« on: Tuesday 06 March 18 06:34 GMT (UK) »
Has anyone else found a mess with some Ancestry records today?

I was looking at the "London, England, Workhouse Admission and Discharge Records, 1764-1930" and every person I checked has the same image; a collage of mixed documents - none of which are related to the person in the search.

There have been other changes to text size and formatting which is a little inconsistent as well.

Frustrating  ::)

Yes, they know about the "images" problem, and are supposed to be working on it.

I reported this 10 days ago during the free weekend. I sent them an example of a link that didn't work. I got a reply from them yesterday, saying that the link I sent them didn't work!!  I replied to them, yes that was my problem please carefully read my original email. I also told them that the idea of a free weekend is to try and get new customers. Taking 10 days to reply in such a stupid manner does them no favours.

Incorrect images - sort of!  Working through the hints for my tree I am finding a number of hints with the name only (no date) and London, England, Church of England Marriages and Banns, 1754-1931 dataset.  But the transcript is an undated bap giving the linked person as one of the parents.  And the image is of that bap even though the URL and heading at top of screen is the mars & banns.

Perhaps this means they're working on the problem of the completely missing image, we now get lucky dip!
