Again, this Thread seems to pop up (poop up) often and go on ad nausium. I just went over to $$Ancestry.com$$ to look up something and noticed what they said on their popup;
"Upgrade your account today and get instant access to the
worlds largest online collection of family history records 700
million names in the U.S. and Canada. All for the low price of
$79.95! (billed annually)"
So this "billed annually" is a lie?
Well, the term "low price" may not be a lie but it's certainly not consistant with the "$79.95" price! That outlandish!!!
