"...and pay an annual payment. This is my review on the site. Ancestry is a research site that has lots of things to search, such as Birth, Death and Marriage records, it also has reference numbers for ordering a certificate, and they are volume and page numbers and district of the event. You can order a certificate using these volume and page numbers by ordering them online and to be posted to your address for you to discover who where their parents ..." Read review

Ancestry helped me make my Grandma smile!

I trace my ancestry back to a primordial globule Review with images

AdvantagesA huge repository of genealogical information. A 'must' for the serious amateur family historian

DisadvantagesSome may baulk at the price but given what you get it's reasonable

"...tree - and Genealogy.com - the parent of Family Treemaker [FTM] - the widely used family history database software. The 2006 version of [FTM] is currently available for $29.95 WHAT DO YOU GET? Ancestry is a subscription site. It offers subscriptions on a monthly or an annual basis and within that there are a variety of databases that can be chosen. Enrolment is a simple matter and can be undertaken on line at either site (with payment in the ..." Read review
