Three News Announcements From Ancestry.com
Posted by Diane

Ancestry.com senior vice president of product Eric Shoup made three news announcements at a reception the online genealogy company hosted this evening:

1. Shoup previewed Ancestry.com’s new search features, some of which  have already been implemented (such as the filters I blogged about last week). Features to be added “in the near future” include
  • more prominent browsing by place (right down to a county, which got applause from the audience), record category and collection

  • a simplified basic search form that asks for name and place of residence (it includes a calculator to help you determine a birth year based on your ancestor’s age at a specific time)

  • pages with historical information and basic facts about counties, as well as additional resources outside of Ancestry.com.
You can see what the new Ancestry.com search eventually will look like here.

2. Ancestry.com is launching a new, free wiki with all the information from the references Ancestry’s Red Book: American State, County and Town Sources edited by Alice Eichholz, and The Source: A Guidebook of American Genealogy edited by Lorretto Dennis Szucs and Sandra Hargraves Luebking (these books will remain available in print through Turner Publishing, which took over Ancestry.com’s book business earlier this year). A wiki is a site anyone can contribute to and edit to update and correct the information. The Ancestry.com Wiki is available now in beta.

3. Mac users, listen up: Ancestry.com will make its Family Tree Maker genealogy software available for Macs. Shoup said that’ll happen before the end of the year.

The link under #1 is broken - the one that begins "You can see ... search eventually will look like ..."
