I'm sure most people are now aware that there are [have been] problems accessing Ancestry.  There are so many reports on Facebook and every other form of social media it would be difficult to miss it.

If you were planning on coming to the Genealogical Society of Victoria to use Ancestry today, you need to be aware that we are not immune to the Ancestry problems - they are world-wide!

Now is a REALLY good time to explore the myriad of other options to access the records you are hoping to find on Ancestry - we can help you with that at the GSV.  These other options may include other databases on the Internet, databases only accessible at the GSV, CDs, microfilms, microfiche, publications, journals and manuscripts.

You might be surprised with some of these other resources - a great time to explore them!

Come on in and let our Library Research Assistants help you on this voyage of discovery.
