New database message board please!

Classification: Query
Please start a new message board just for databases and reporting errors found with them so that maybe ancestry will pay attention and fix things.

Not trees, not the loading problems we've been talking about, not anything but the databases. No search engine talk except for when the main search engine doesn't report from a databae.

Here is an example:

Iowa Cemetery Records
These cemetery records represent seventy-six counties and Graceland Cemetery of Sioux City, Iowa, in the united States, that were transcribed by the Works Project Administration.

Questeus W. Turner 1805 26 Aug 1886 Eno Luana

Name: Questeus W. Turner
Death Date: 26 Aug 1886
Page #: 211
Birth Date: 1805
Cemetery: Eno
Town: Luana
Level Info: Clay County, Iowa Grave Records

It's Clayton County, not Clay

from the Works Project Administration site

TURNER Questeus W. 1805 26 Aug 1886 Eno Wagner Twp. Clayton

TURNER, Questeus W.
Born: 1805
Died: 26 AUG 1886
Cemetery: ENO
Location: WAGNER TWP.

BTW, if anyone is looking - this is actually Tertius Wetmore Turner.

Some databases are limited to 8 characters so that one who is looking for a surname that is longer has to use wild cards.

Maybe this is what they did. Just cut down Clayton to Clay.
