I've had so many ERROR MESSAGES in the last few days, I've lost count!

Sending messages, trying to read messages....... all over the place!

I just tried to search for the surname CHRISTIE born in LANARK between 1870 & 1890, and ofcourse I got a long list of CHRISTIE names born in LANARKSHIRE. I tried again, this time CHRISTIE born in LANARK LANARKSHIRE......... guess what I got? Yup, ERROR MESSAGE!!!

For goodness sake GR, stop messing about with new stuff! Fix the broken system we're stuck with!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Two out of three times that I click on My Threads I get the error message.

Just how many times does this error message have to be logged before something is done about it ?

Spend ages trying to get on to the site, then keep getting timed out when I try to open posts=move round the boards.
More than a little fed up now. :-(

And then it double posted for no reason!


AmazingGrace08 Report 14 Jun 2013 03:20

getting it when posting, when trying to open a post or selecting a board...much worse than it has been (in my opinion!)

I'm also seeing an error message when trying to move around the boards. Most notably when trying to move through threads that have numerous pages.

But after seeing Ancestry ads everyday since the 19th May there hasn't been one yet on the boards. Fingers crossed that problem has been fixed.

I'm still getting the Error message when submitting posts, and about 50% of the time when trying to open My Threads

I get that message too. Also get" unable to find the page at GR "or" the link to the server was broken while the page was loading".
Like you, only on GR. Other sites no problem.

I haven't seen an error message for ages (insert smug face emoticon) however I have an equally annoying variation.....

'Genes Reunited is not responding'.....and my ie goes bang! :-(

Only happens on GR

Sorry. An error has occurred
The page you were trying to load has experienced an error. This error has been logged and will be investigated.

Very frustrating tonight indeed.

Wow several error messages in a few minutes. Hopefully it is due to the site being updated and not a result of the update.

Fed up getting error messages when trying to use "My Threads"

Jemma - you can't blame GR for the sometimes off-hand or critical comments on Find Ancestors, the replies are all from other members. Yes we pay to use the site, but GR aren't there to do our searching, only provide some facilities. ( They do sometimes unasked send possible connections). Most members who search for you are very helpful but there are a few who don't seem to realise what an unknown country this is for beginners! or even more experienced ones who get stuck with brick walls


Gai Report 31 May 2013 12:28

I'm still seeing ads nearly and it must be two weeks since I reported them to GR.

Anyone in the UK think they could do a better job than the current Marketing Manager because I think GR needs a new one.
