Is It Really New at Ancestry.com?

Today's screen shot at Ancestry.com:

I like Ancestry.com. I really do.

However, I get tired of "new" databases that are either just updated, tweaked, etc. and may or may not really be "new." Or if they are new, it is not obvious to the user what is new and what is not.

The Ancestry.com website indicated today that they recently released updated UK Incoming Passenger Lists from 1878 to 1960. I'm not certain what is new about them, but I used them in 2008 when I created a blog post about my uncle Virgil Rampley appearing in them.

I would like it if they would be a little more clear what's new, what's changed, etc.

All of which goes to prove how important it is to track what you do and WHEN you do it.
