    I got an annual subscription for the US records for $99.95 in January. They have been running specials every few weeks since last fall. I had been subscribing to ancestry for years and then it just got too expensive to keep, so I dropped it for a couple of years. I still got newsletters from them and when they offered the special, I jumped back in. Still can't afford to get the world record collection, much to my dismay, but I know a few people who do subscribe and they are really great about looking up info for me.

    Yes! My sister traced are tree back to Wales,but dad had said we were Welch. Dad new a few words of Welch or what ever its called? It was these papers that sissy got that told that the name in Welch ment Hun which was a real shock. I found one family coat of arms from Wales my sister found one on the net that is older from Brittany in France,with the Cross of St. Andrew. There is an Abby outside of Bordauxe, France by that name. So I will have to look there too. In Brittany they speak Breton & French. Both coat of arms has the bear on them because we of the bear clan.

    Absolutely fer certain shure. One of my great grandmothers is a Bowen from Wales (Nantyglo) and when working on this one I have to be really careful just which ones I look at. Not to mention the fact she married a Newton--which is like a John Smith in the UK.

    So your saying the surname is Welch? You can find the surname meaning here on this excellent new site. One of my husbands gr grandmothers was a Welch.

    World Vital Records Collection

    Does anyone here subscribe to Everton's World Vital Records Collection? I got a notice that they are offering a 2 year subscription for $49.95. I am just wondering if it is worth the money (as cheap as it is I still don't want to spend for something that has little new information to offer as I already have ancestry) but I don't know of anyone who actually subscribes.Anyone?

    Has anyone checked out http://www.myheritage.com/ at all? Is it any good? It looks pretty slick but I wondered if it was of any real use for genealogy research.

    I previously did not have an account on this site till I just went to register so I could check it out and saw I already had one apparently, with a gold membership since 28 May. I had to have the password emailed to me. Oh they just got a few nasty emails. I cannot find an option anywhere to even remove my tree that I did not upload or delete my own account! I am f***ing livid!

    On the forum I found you have to contact support to have your account removed. From what I saw on the site, it hangs up a lot and it's not that snazy a site. There isn't even a help section, just a few FAQ's you really have to search for.

    My biggest pet peeve is when you do all the work to get a really well documented family tree online and then find these other websites that have not only placed your info on their site, but are selling it either as a pay to view or on CD's.I don't mind sharing any info I have with anyone who asks but I do have a major problem with these places that take the info and make money off of it.I don't get paid anything for it.Lets face it, I put it out there to share and to, hopefully, network with other people researching the same family groups.I didn't put it out there to be sold.That is just plain wrong!
