This unique collection of records was extracted from a variety of sources including family group sheets and electronic databases. Originally, the information was derived from an array of materials including pedigree charts and family history articles.

The marriage records in this database were provided by Yates Publishing. Yates Publishing has been publishing genealogical books, periodicals, and quarterlies since 1972. In 1981, the founder, Bill Yates, began a service to provide and collect the family history information in family group sheets. Called the Family Group Sheet Exchange, this service has collected over 200,000 pages of family group sheets on paper and several hundred thousand more on disk.

I just tried the link, and it worked correctly. You have to have a paid account to access the link in this profile. Even without signing in, I did not get the same error message you report.

ancestry.com is going through some system changes now, so that may be the source of the problem.
