    Updated records.

    I share your frustration on this one. Many times I've checked for elusive ancestors in "updated" record sets, and still found nothing.

    Anc. messaging 'service'.

    Steve, I understand your frustration with received messages, and how some do fish for information. However, until recently I was one of those with no Ancestry tree. If I did message someone, I would always explain my connection, and explain how I had a tree elsewhere on the net. If they...

    More money!?

    Totally agree. Both of the major paid sites have cut back on what you can access, forcing subscribers into paying more to get to the information they need.
