<--- It looks to me
to be misrepresentation of the word "free" -->
Frankly it is. There is never anything free about giving up your credit
card number. Eventually you're going to have to pay. That said I
strongly encourage you to read the small print and anticipate a catch.
If you're looking for freebies your best bet is to try free evaluations
with no strings attached.
To offset this money sponging I have provided my site users with links
to genealogy resources that feature free research tools. Keep in mind
that at any time even these resources may resort to offering services
for a fee.
There are some very hardcore responses to this site. Seems every board
gets hit by one now and then. Rather than killing the string just have
the good sense to ignore an undesirable response. As a professional
event planner I find it's best be be completely up front about costs.
Folks appreciate being able to stick to a budget and to anticipate and
prepare for extra expenses. It's the only way to maintain clientel and
get referals. Still Ancetry has great resources that many consider a
primary research tool. Can't knock em.
