Thank you once again for your patience and support during this DDoS attack on Ancestry.
The first few times I tried to go to Ancestry.com after they announced the site was back up, the website did not load. But later this afternoon I was able to get the website to load and I was able to log onto the site. I didn't stay long, I just wanted to see if I could do so. Again, I advise patience while Ancestry continues to resolve the situation.
See you soon at the Mt. Clemens Public Library!
