Genes Reunited

Hi all

I'm a subscriber to the Ancestry site, and was thinking of joing the above.

Is the site as good as the press releases say, and is it worth it to join just to make contact with people.

Appreciate your points of view.
Don't bother, go straight to the parent site of Find My Past if you want to see records.

But you could register with G-R, and see what happens, as regards connecting with members.

Hi Steve, I've made some great contacts in GRU. I ignore all the Hot Matches, too tiresome.
I have my tree all stored in there and I'm very happy about that. I update it when I have new info. For $20 a year it's worth it for peace of mind if my pc spits the dummy.
Easy to use.
Ozn :)
I always use FindMyPast, never GR for research. I just use it for chat now. I used to use GR when I was a novice but now I can do genealogy alone and find new things as I research.
