Did you notice there's nothing for Canada, and only one item for the UK?  So did I.

I'm told by my favourite Ancestry person there will be a press release coming with a similar list for the international components of Ancestry.  Stay tuned.

Remember these are plans which can go awry. A year ago we were promised, see http://goo.gl/i4vqr, Canada: Voter records, 1935-1983, which are still to appear.
