I subscribe to Ancestry.com but used HeritageQuest for quite a number of my citations for images of the US Federal Census when the image at Ancestry.com was illegible or other issues existed.
The images on HeritageQuest are now being sourced by Ancestry. The images that HeritageQuest had provided *are no longer available*.
This is a concern because:
- Someone following a citation to HeritageQuest will *not* end up viewing the image being cited
- Copies of images downloaded from HeritageQuest no longer represent what's on HeritageQuest
I checked a few images that I'd downloaded from HeritageQuest and found that the image now on HeritageQuest was actually better than what they had in the past.
My census citations are per EE 6.19 - 6.31 and include the date I viewed online images. I plan to review the images now on HeritageQuest and update the date viewed just to be careful. (That may not be absolutely necessary, of course.)
Anyway, I thought others that use those EE citations would like this heads-up!
