Old Version of Ancestry.com to Go Away
On December 15, 2015, all of the present Ancestry.com accounts will move to the new website. I have noted that many Ancestry.com users are still using the "old site." I suggest you move to the new website before you wake up and find that you are already there. You can switch to the new website by logging in to the program. Once you are in the program, you can click on your name in the upper right-hand corner of the screen and get a drop down menu that will include a link to the new website.
This is not an issue as to whether or not you like either the old or new website. Technological changes often dictate website updates and it is inevitable that the content and page views will change as the websites are updated. All of the larger online genealogical database companies have updated their websites so far this year.
By the way, expressing your shock, disagreement, displeasure, etc. online will not do a bit of good.
