Two of the world’s largest family history research organizations are joining forces in an effort they say will bring 1 billion historical records online.


The effort joins together the nonprofit FamilySearch, which provides access to its records for free, and the for-profit Ancestry.com, which charges subscribers monthly fees for access to its databases and services.

The two organizations have collaborated on projects for several years and Sullivan said Ancestry.com does not view FamilySearch’s free content as a drain on its revenues.

I wonder if familysearch will eventually start charging :confused:
