I thought that when I copy/pasted them, the links would copy also.  They didn't.  You will have to go to the New/Updated page, or the Card Catalog (enter the title in the "Title" search field) to access a specific record collection.

The one that intrigues me is the U.S., County and Regional Histories and Atlases, 1804-1984 collection.  There may be many goodies in that collection - histories, biographies, maps, etc.

  1. >Web: Warren County, New Jersey, Obituary Index, 1848-1914

    This is just my 2 cents, but every time I get a hint of this kind, I ignore it. It's just a waste of time and effort.

  2. I've been posting weekly updates of both and 'updates and additions' on my blog for quite a while now. There is a trick to getting the links on You have to click through the link and copy and paste the title and url from the next page to create the link in your post. It can be very time-consuming.

    Hope this helps.

  3. Thanks for posting this, Randy. I constantly check the updated collections on Family Search, but for some reason I've never thought of doing the same for Ancestry. I've included your tip on my Friday Favorites, too!
