I received an email from Ancestry.com today that says:
"From mid-November until early January, Ancestry receives an extremely high volume of traffic to the site. To ensure our users have the best experience possible, we limit changes made to the site during this period including new content. Content is still in production and will be added occasionally until we return to a regular release schedule in early January."That explains it. I don't recall that Ancestry.com has done this before. It is a BIG site and I understand the traffic issue.
I will continue to review the "Recently Added and Updated Collections on Ancestry" page each week but will add their note to my posts each week.
There have been occasional deletions of record collections on Ancestry.com which I've pointed out when noted, but we have had no indication of which collections were deleted and the reason for the deletion.
My thanks to Ancestry.com for reducing the concern and confusion in this matter.
