Subject: Re: [SC] Free Family Tree Viewing to be eliminated - Ancestry
Just an FYI. My understanding is that they are not charging. Please
message below that contains information from the ancestry.com help desk.
I know it is confusing but I hope this helps a bit.
Take care - Emma

Ancestry is *not* charging for access to trees or selling trees: access
remain free from both the RootsWeb and Ancestry side as it has always
What Ancestry is offering for an extra charge is access to a special
engine to search the trees for you. Folks can still search the trees
manually or browse the trees for free the same way they always have.
Think of it as a research assistant: you can hire someone to help you
for your ancestors, or you can research yourself for free. Hiring a
research assistant doesn't sell them the data being researched, or
the rules so that only they are allowed to look.
That's essentially what it is, except that it's computerized, not human.
