Findmypast down..?

Postby Cachalot6972 » Fri Apr 12, 2019 7:25 am

Is anyone else having trouble getting on to Findmypast?
Since yesterday morning I've just been getting the message "Sorry, we had trouble getting those results. Bear with us and try again later, while we work on this issue."

I was just about to post the following:

“In the past few weeks, I have noticed a lot of errors being reported, such as 500, Oops etc and Sorry etc messages from Findmypast search engine. It has made site almost unusable.‬
‪Anyone else experiencing same, or know what problem is‬”

Is this what you mean :D

Everyone is in the same boat.

It's posted on their Facebook page - no particular explanation. I can get on, bring up the search screens but no answers.

No technically literate message from FMP but that's no surprise as all organizations think that technical explanations will scare the horses.
