Goodby to the Ancestry Insider

A faithful blogger has put down his virtual pen and paper. The Ancestry Insider – “unofficial and unauthorized” commenter on and – announced the end of his online newsletter last week.

For eleven years he’s brought us news and views about Ancestry and FamilySearch. I always enjoyed the examples he shared in his series ‘Records Say the Darnedest Things’ as well as ‘Monday Mailbox’.

Some of his last postings included reports from the 2017 National Genealogical Society Conference and an illuminating little article on “Darned Page Order,” about census pages not microfilmed in page order (and the failed corrections by Ancestry and FamilySearch). This is what we’ll be missing as the AncestryInsider goes dark. We thank him for his many years of shared insights.
