"Classic" No Longer Exists

They have finally closed the Classic, which to many of us was where we cut our teeth on doing Internet genealogy research.
I know there were many problems with the information that the Classical had, and some of it was downright incorrect – but one can say it was an admirable first attempt to put the information online.
I started my research on my ancestor Andrew Barclay on the site, and became a regular visitor, and user when I first went on the Internet in the mid-1990s.

The new and improved has replaced the old IGI.

The old IGI had so many errors in it that had to be corrected.

So now they have replaced the "old" with the "new" and I have found it to be quite good.
