 There were four NEW databases this past week. There are 32,647 databases available as of 24 May, an decrease of 15 from last week.  WHAT?  They can't count them right from week to week?  Perhaps they discontinued 19 databases for some reason without telling us?

My best guess would be that 20, 10, or 5 years ago Ancestry signed licenses on certain databases and they have now expired.
