Recently, due to the postings of bloggers regarding Ancestry, I have been contemplating on my "wish list" on the content I would like to see.
First of all, I am a huge fan of this subscription website. I still pinch myself that I can go online and actually access the entire US Census and some States Censuses. I found ancestors in places that would have never been located otherwise. Among other things are the Military records with the pension files which I was able to order from NARA. (Since they raised their prices to a full file of $75.00 I haven't ordered).
Of course there are things about it that I don't care for such as the content that they have been adding for the last couple of months. My research is still in the U.S. and I don't have much desire at the moment to venture across the ocean several centuries back! There is still alot here that can be posted. I do realize that they must meet the needs of their other subscribers as well. The family trees portion makes me cringe....the repeating of errors posting after posting! I try not to be so arrogant, but some of the corrections/answers can be easily obtained by just a couple of clicks.
So to get back to my wish list:
1. New York State Census Records in full!2. Easier access to the Revolutionary Rolls by index.3. Vital Record images.4. Wills/Probate Records.5. Complete Mortality Records.
I will stop here, I don't want to be too greedy!
I am a Pacific Northwest born and raised intermediate genealogist. Genealogy has been in my blood since about 1980 and have been fortunate enough to have a Mom who was a family interviewer, picture collector and was my genealogy partner until ill health forced her to put it aside.
I have a husband who has been a great support to my hobby and also a good partner. Our only child, Andrea was married this summer to a person we adore, William Kyle Johnson. We are so looking forward to future grandchildren and making more family history.
