Ancestry.com Web Sites Down (and Now Back Up)
Posted by Diane
Tweets are flying around Twitter that Ancestry.com
and its sister sites RootsWeb
are down, for the first time in anyone’s memory here. We've been trying for about a half hour. Snowstorms took out some trees and power lines in Provo, Utah, last night
—maybe that's the culprit. We'll update you when we find out what's going on.
Just spoke with spokesperson Anastasia Tyler. All Ancestry.com properties have been experiencing an outage for a couple of hours now, and a team is working to fix the issues. Tyler believes no data loss would have occurred. Stay tuned for more details.Update
: Looks like the sites are working again.
