I'm a little late on the question of Genealogy.com and Ancestry.com. I cancelled both. I get more from this site ARIZARD-L then I did from either other sited and its more fun too. I got try of bothe Genealogy and Ancestry in the way they billed and trying to find thing. I sometime got the Census other times couldn't. So, I just cancelled for a while. I enjoy all of you and you all have help me a lot in my research and I have help a lot of you in your research. I will share everything that I have with all of you. I have made copies of books for people and I don't charge for it and I do it to help people. all I ask in return is to help me in my errors and update what I don't have.
I Enjoy all of you
Have a great day
