Did "Lübeck, Germany, Citizenship Register, 1591-1919" Go 'Poof?'

[note: as of 19 March 2014 the images for this database were viewable, but the index has not actually been completed]

It frustrating when databases do not work correctly.

It is more frustrating when they apparently disappear from websites entirely without notice. I recently had difficulty searching a database on Ancestry.com titled "Lübeck, Germany, Citizenship Register, 1591-1919." Now I apparently cannot find it on the site. [note-update 3:31 pm 17 March 2014: A Google search does locate this database which is still on the Ancestry.com site here http://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=1563. Thanks to LT and MJL for point this out to me on Facebook. It is interesting that Google was the way this had to be located.]

The card catalog doesn't show it.

Am I missing something or has it been pulled from the site?
