How did I miss the partial upload of the Sunday World to the BNA - in January! Been waiting for it for years; would have preferred if it started at the other end of the print run; they just have 87-06 with some gaps currently but hopefully there's more coming

When looking for stories of a certain "colour" this was the obvious hole in the set of national papers available. The Evening Press will be useful when it turns up (its on the INA promised list) but I think death notices were already printed in the Irish Press anyway.

And as an aside, who on earth would ever pay for the BNAs £19.95 40 page offer? I could do 40 pages in five minutes if the search engine is up to it; and its £12.95 a month on a one month contract!

Is ancestry no longer automactically inputting the sex of those you add from onlne records?

Now I must go back into each persons profile and click on male or female, after adding them from the record.

Is it my imagination, or used ancestry give you relationship info in relation to the tree's 'home' person, for example, 'wife of second cousin once removed' when you clicked on a person in the tree?

Not certain but I think that only works for your own tree where you - the compiler of the tree - are the home person.

Yes it seems to be gone on mine.
Bah. Maybe I clicked something in error.

It's been very hit and miss recently. Quite slow right now.

Yes, I've noticed the same problems the past few days and nights.
Surprised it hasn't been mentioned at Irish Genealogy News.
In an ideal world they'd be getting in touch with Claire to let her know the issue.

Found someone on Ancestry via the hints system (which I rarely/barely use) who has another generation back on my mothers paternal line; and a sibling connection across to someone I'd been keeping isolated on the tree due to buying the wrong certs and having a hunch they were related (son has an obscure name that family use)

I really, really hope they actually have some evidence for that as it'll open that dead end up and also get me to ~1770 or so. But they've some obviously confused/hacked together stuff on other people on the tree, so I'm not holding out hope!

It also recommended someone to me who appears to have their entire tree upside down, parents as children and v/v.

I recently had contact with someone on Ancestry and because of his line, I know he is a 4th/5th cousin, however, he has built his tree as he said himself "from other trees on Ancestry"!!!! I'm afraid. I'm very afraid.
