You only have a five generation tree and you cannot find a list of place names. Those pinned on the map (and many parishes are not recognised) are only for those five generations.

Feasibly, you could have a good match six generations back, but if your match has a large tree, you have to trawl through page after page of family, attempting to spot that match.

One good thing about the new and improved, but I don't think this is a change, is that you can see the notes without having to click on them.

There is a new feature just been added to Ancestry Labs - "Hints Feedback". "Let us know why you accepted or ignored certain hints so we can provide you with more meaningful hints in the future."

I'm about to try it out. Hopefully they will actually use the feedback to improve the hints system, which is pretty bad at the moment.

This evening, it keeps giving me the hint feedback form to fill in when I accept or reject a hint, although the Ancestry Lab shows that I have the Hints Beta disabled, and there is no on / off switch showing on the hints page. I usually turn it on if there are some wildly wrong hints that I want to flag up, and then turn it off again as it is quite time-consuming to fill it in for every one. Hope this is just a glitch and they aren't making it mandatory!

Well, now the Ancestry Lab tab says "There are no betas available at this time." so I guess the Hints Feedback system can't be turned off any more. I don't think I'll bother to fill it in for accepted hints, though, only rejected ones.
