Ancestry has not posted anything relevant in months. This includes the coming soon section where it listed numerous items coming by the end of 2018. I strongly believe they are having an issue on their site and have not told anyone. Never, since I joined in 2000 have I seen such little new content. Also, even though you can't search the "baseball questionnaires", other have linked it to their accounts so somehow there must be a way to do it.
