We just received this quick word from Ancestry.com this morning regarding the shutdown of some of its properties and services planned for 5 September 2014:
Due to recent site issues, we will be extending the period that MyFamily, MyCanvas, Genealogy.com, Mundia and the Y-DNA and mtDNA websites will be available. These sites will not retire until September 30, 2014.
You may remember that several Ancestry.com sites including fold3, Find A Grave, RootsWeb, MyCanvas and MyFamily.com suffered through a Distributed Denial of Service attack a few weeks ago.
