Unfortunately I can't remember details as well as I once could, so
maybe someone else remembers what was "promised" by Ancestry when they
acquired Rootsweb. I have a vague recollection that some things were
promised.... but perhaps it's just wishful thinking. Now that they've
cancelled mail lists, will user web sites be the next to go?
