It has been more than three years ago that access to Ancestry.com was removed from family history centers.  Removed might nit be the correct wording since some of the resources of the site continued to be available, but it felt as though it was being removed.  Many of the collections on Ancestry were no long available, including most of the United States census and the British census.  Shortly thereafter FamilySearch worked to replace at least some of the resources by indexing the 1910 census and purchasing subscriptions to HeritageQuest online and FindMyPast, but the loss of Ancestry continued to leave a hole. That hole has now been filled as nearly all of the Ancestry.com records can now be accessed for free from the Morgan family history center.
