Just a quick post tonight about a couple of current genealogy events going on.
1. I called Ancestry.com today to discuss my frustration regarding another member sharing a picture from my tree and attributing it to an obviously wrong person in her tree. But that is another blog post. What is news is the offer the made me. I normally pay $19.99 a month for the standard subscription so I can easily bail if I know it will be a slow research month. Instead, they offered me 6 months for $99.00 for the upgraded World Explorer membership. Plus an additional free month. Since most of my research is not in the US, I can start back up with some English relatives again. My math tells me that is a $40 saving over my current route, and I'll have more access to more records!
2. I just read Louis Gates is starting up his show "Finding your Roots" again tomorrow (Tuesday) 8/7C on PBS. Just in time, I'm beginning to have YDYTYA withdrawals.
