Does anyone feel the way I do about Ancestry.com's so called free trial offers? Free??? only if you supply a credit card number. Is this 'free?'
Howard, I do not use a credit card and tried many times to get on the free Ancestry.com and can't so just gave up on it.I would not think of it as a free thing.
What I have heard from many is that when they gave the card they were charged for the entire year and it was most difficult for them to opt out when the trial was over. Phones that just rang and no one answered. There is a site called www.gensuck.com where people have aired their concerns with many genie sites. I do not know what the current state of affairs is with the free trial period.

I also gave up on Ancestry.com, actually a long time ago. It looks like they have info you want, but try to get it. Then when I had someone to go get it, it still wasn't much of anything. I think it is a waste of time for me now,so avoid it.
I just purchased the new FAMILY TREE MAKER 2005 version, and with it contained a 10 day free trial for Ancestry.com. Like I mentioned before, it wasn't free. Had to submit a credit card which I refuse to.
I sub to 'Ancestry' and find it to be well worth the $'s that I paid. Has a feature 'Ancestry Family Tree' that is worth the price alone. I finally realized that if one wants the data one should be willing to pay for it.
http://www.searchalot.com/ I like this site for gen research. Better than Google cuz it searches ALL the major search engins including Google ann Yahoo

DID YOU KNOW: The earliest Christmas trees were smaller trees that stood on tables. The concept of the floor-ceiling tree was introduced in forest rich America in the early 1800's.
I would be willing to pay for Ancestry.com if I was able to view the data they have without being forced to pay the one year subscription. It is suppose to be a Free site for 10-14 days. It is not free! This is my point. I'm sure they have great data for a price. Howard

I feel that ALL genealogy sites that charge for their services should have to pay the people submitting the information. You don't collect money to submit but they sure like to get your information.
That last posting was to Walt and all who advocate the pay sites. I also don't have a credit card and wouldn't use it if I did.
Hi guess I'll add my two cents in here. We have a credit card we use for just computor ordering, that has a limit of $250-, so if I want to order a certificate I can. That is all it is used for. We have one with bigger allowence that is never used on the computor. Our cable bill is put on the cheap one every month. If anyone got to it we could cover it. I asked for Ancestry for my Christmas present from hubby about five years ago. What I don't like is the new things like imigration, and newspapers are seperate subscriptions. If anyone wants me to look up something for them on their just ask. I am pretty well caught upon mine, and close friends. Am feeling better and can sit at computor longer than five minutes at a time. I am asking Santa for the imigration part this christmas. Who started this talk about trees? Must have been June. First person I met on here or should I say old site.
