New 1860 and 1870 Census Indexes at Ancestry

Ancestry.com has announced new census indexes for 1860 and 1870. I'm hoping they locate a few individuals I just cannot find and for whom I have exhausted all manual approaches except searching the entire United States page by page.

I'm give the new indexes a try and will see what I can locate. I'm hoping, but I'm not holding my breath.
