My personal take on Ancestry.  In just the first month I joined I advanced my research by leaps & bounds.
 What could of taken me 20 years to assemble & find the old fashioned way. Voile Ancestry brought it to me so quickly.  I keep saying Ancestry. Com has been worth every penny I have paid in my subscription.  Try the trial.  See what you can find.  Then continue.  If you want to know more about your family then by all means keep going back.
