New Ancestry Color Options

Earlier this week the Ancestry blog announced new color options for Ancestry users.  Here is a sample of the blue – pretty bright.  There are a handful of choices.  If the Ancestry default color doesn’t work for your eyes, go check out the other options.

I love it when the big websites address common complaints/requests.  The default color works for me but I know a lot of people struggle with the colors, and a lot of people have complained.  Ancestry listened.  Happy Friday!

I'm a girl who loves genealogy. Let me tell you about it.

  1. As a creature of habit who adjusts to change only when required, I will keep the defaults also. It took me a while to adjust to New Ancestry, and now I can’t remember what the old one looked like!

  2. I don’t remember exact colors, but it was light on light, I think! Nice they addressed the looks, but it’s like painting an old rusty bucket–you can change the color, but it still leaks.

    • You and Ancestry aren’t very good friends, are you? 😉 It’s like a medium toned cool brownish/gray background.

      • Not so much anymore. I side with Amy, change is hard, especially when I’m paying money to be aggravated. So I eliminated the aggravation.

        • I’m so totally devoted to Ancestry that I powered through. But I have a handful of specific collections found there (and only there) that use constantly. I also use my Ancestry tree as my primary working copy of my tree. But I get it. A lot of people are unhappy with Ancestry right now.
