Title: Ancestry birth registration year not appearing
Post by: Heb66 on Saturday 10 October 20 13:11 BST (UK)
Hi,
When I am searching for births on Ancestry, the birth year doesn't seem to appear in the registration year column ,next to the registration quarter. You have to click into the persons name to view the year of birth. Only relatively recent birth years are showing up.
Is anyone else having the same issues ?
Frustrating !!
Thank you

What are you collection are looking at?

I've just tried a search on births* for John Jones and the years are showing up along with the other details.

I have just tried it on both data sets - up to 1915 and from 1916 onwards.
The year is not showing for me either, although bringing up the relative I input and the quarter end.

No doubt Ancestry will be working on it (I hope!)

That's very strange because I'm getting them on both.

Hi,
As long as it's not just me, I'm searching GRO birth 1837-1915 & 1916 onwards.
It's been happening for a couple of days, I've even tried changing my web browser.
I will call ancestry tomorrow.
Thank you everyone

I've noticed it as well. Not always, and only in the last couple of days.
I'm using co.uk.

Yes. Same problem. And different ones as well-are you able to progress to the next page on UK census images?

EDIT:Trying to get to the "next page"> is impossible on most data sets.

I noticed this yesterday as well.

Not consistent, most were OK but some records just do not display the date.

Agree. Going back is almost impossible.

The date isn't consistently showing on the Civil Reg Marriages either from 1916 -- and doesn't appear to be showing at all 1837 - 1915 (although I haven't checked all the pages).

Seems to be there on deaths.

Hi everyone,
At least I am not alone, so frustrating especially when you are really quick as a researcher and hop in and out of each individual birth etc until you find the connection you are looking for.
Thanks again

I still have no years of birth showing.
Is anyone else the same?

I haven't tried today but as of yesterday I was still getting a grey banner covering most of the page wanting cookie permission appearing every time time I changed page. Also lack of dates as mentioned.

Since I posted I tried a chat with Ancestry. I was asked to send an example which I did and got some sympathy and told that it would be referred.

Hi,
Still no years showing, on birth or marriages.
Frustrating x

Yes it is very frustrating. I also mentioned that my messages are showing that I have some new ones but it is the just the number already received.
I was told that this is known and they are working on it - it has been going on for weeks.  ::)

Had an e-mail this morning from Ancestry - apologies for the "blip" but it's now up and running again.  I've checked it out, and YES  ;D ;D
