Ancestry.com, Genealogy.com and FindAGrave.com Outages

Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter

Three major genealogy web sites seem to be having server outages this morning. Ancestry.com , Genealogy.com and FindAGrave.com (all sites are owned by Ancestry.com and probably are hosted in the same data center) seem to be having frequent outages. Details may be found at https://www.facebook.com/Ancestry.com while recent updates from users may be found at http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/ancestry.com.html. Scroll down a bit to read the reports received in the last hour or so.

I can sympathize. The EOGN.com newsletter’s web site recently suffered distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks and was up and down like a yo-yo for a couple of days. I don’t know the cause of the current problems at Ancestry.com and FindAGrave.com but do know the effects of such problems. I suspect the problem will be resolved in a few hours, possibly in a day or two.
