Libby Report 7 Oct 2013 15:54


Sorry folks. Used wrong e-mail address. Must have been having a senior moment ;-)


Alan Report 7 Oct 2013 15:45

I have Premium but when I try to view records now I am now getting this message:-

The record you have just tried to view is available with one of our memberships below.
Upgrade today for access to this record and all Pre-1837 records and so much more.



Libby Report 7 Oct 2013 15:26

I have been able to log on but only as a registered guest. My paid up worldwide memberships doesn't run out until March next year !! :-0


Potty Report 7 Oct 2013 14:01

Working OK for me now.


ArgyllGran Report 7 Oct 2013 13:40

It lets me search, but sometimes have to re- sign on


Treehunter Report 7 Oct 2013 13:33

I can get into home page but that's it wont let me search anything :-S


ArgyllGran Report 7 Oct 2013 13:22

Seems to be working now, though there's an apology for intermittent service, at the top of each page.

It's certainly been slow for some days..


wisechild Report 7 Oct 2013 13:13

Snap Maryanna.
Just get to look at the Birmingham records & there they were, gone.


Maryanna Report 7 Oct 2013 13:08

Oh good, I am not alone.

Just when I have found some lovely Parish Records to print out too !!

Will just have to wait a bit longer then. M


wisechild Report 7 Oct 2013 13:08

Not just you. It´s been iffy for a couple of days.
had a real problem getting into it today & can´t access my tree, nor any lookups that I want.
There is a message at the top of the page saying they are experiencing problems.
So am I. :-0 :-0 :-0


*Alison* Report 7 Oct 2013 12:28

i have come here to see if anyone else was having trouble getting on to Ancestry, so it's not just me then.
Hopefully it will be working again soon.



Gai Report 7 Oct 2013 12:23

I posted on Facebook and received this reply Hi Gai, sorry for the inconvenience. We are looking into reports of site slowness and access issues at the moment and hope to have more information available soon. Apologies again.

I haven't had much luck lately with not being able to access GR all weekend and no Ancestry. Maybe I should give up.

Thanks I thought it may have been my computer.



Treehunter Report 7 Oct 2013 12:16

Look at this site it tells you what sites are down. Look on the right hand side and go down page.


Treehunter Report 7 Oct 2013 12:14

Yes its not letting me have home page just getting a blank one. I did get to home page then it went off. :-(
