Ancestry is one of those subscription services that you love, hate and love to hate. Sunday evening it had been more of a "I HATE ANCESTRY" night and I know that I am not alone. C'mon, how many of you out there have gotten this message:
Database id or database name specified incorrectly or the database is no longer valid.
It has been an extremely frustrating time trying to search census and then after ages of waiting, you get a page with that message.
And you know, I think it is only going to get worse once all these Genie shows hit the air. Could I survive without Ancestry? I doubt it. It is still the best overall resource out there.
Usually when Ancestry starts acting flaky, I start looking for other things I can do. Since most of those things usually involve working on Ancestry, it makes me a bit cranky. It seems I am usually swearing at my printer or at Ancestry these days.
Maybe I'll take a page out of Cousin Carol's book and go clean out my email folders.
PS. After waiting a couple days, I got a response from Ancestry that I needed to clear my cache. Now this problem has happened intermittently over the last couple days and has cleared up without any action on my part. No, Ancestry, this is not a cache problem.
