Ancestry birth registration year not appearing
« 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!)
West Yorks; ---- Illingworth, Marshall, Muffit/Muffett/Murfitt, Barber, Sanderson, Townend, Barraclough, Lister -- and lots more. Locations mainly in Birstall parish - Hartshead-- Drighlington --Adwalton --Mirfield - Heckmondwike --Kippax - Sherburn in Elmet.

Ireland ------Cleary, Whelan - Nenagh.
Dowling - Monasterevin
Daly - Westmeath

Lancashire ---- Smith from Alston , Johnson and Fairclough---- Tarleton and loads more from Tarleton and Accrington areas.

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.
