New, But HOW?


Can someone tell me "how" the 1880 United States Federal Census on Ancestry.com is "new?" The database and the images have been on the site for years. Is it "new" enough that I should try again for people I cannot locate? Is it newer or better images (the ones before were pretty good)? Don't get me wrong, I am a big fan of Ancestry.com, but this "new" stuff with NO explanation of "how" it is new is highly irritating.

I went to the blog for Ancestry.com and got no information there either. A sentimental post about Pearl Harbor (which was nice), but nothing about the 1880 United States Census being "new" or modified.
