  1. Thanks Ancestry for continuing to expand available data bases. I have marveled over the many years that I have been a member at the vast improvements at Ancestry.

  2. has a bad habit of incorrectly indexing the Quaker meeting records. One example is the indexing of the Duck Creek Men's Meeting Minutes, 1834-1851 as being in Kent Co., DE. I have sent several complaints, but nothing seems to make a difference.
