Week #2 – Paid Online Genealogy Tools
Week 2 – Paid Online Genealogy Tools: Which paid genealogy tool do you appreciate the most? What special features put it at the top of your list? How can it help others with their genealogy research?
In the past I have subscribed to a number of genealogy sites and tools, but the one "paid tool" that I have consistently utilized is my subscription to www.ancestry.com
While some may complain about the monthly fees or even paying annually; I split the difference and choose the quarterly payment option. I can handle $50 every three months, for something I use almost everyday.
For those that may be financially challenged there are abundant resources available at the sister site www.rootsweb.com
52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy by Amy Coffin is a series of weekly blogging prompts (one for each week of 2012) that invite genealogists and others to discuss resources in the genealogy community including websites, applications, libraries, archives, genealogical societies and more. You do not have to be a blogger to participate. If you do not have a genealogy blog, write down your thoughts on your computer, or simply record them on paper and keep them with your files.
