The Cons of Online Genealogy




George, Peggy Sue. The Cons of Online Genealogy. s.l.: s.n., 2015. [Available for Amazon Kindle purchase]

The author who admits she has little personal interest in genealogy is simply disenchanted with a couple of sites which did not meet her expectations. In the case of Ancestry.com, she believes they want to charge her a fee to store her tree, photos, and grandmother's collected data. She completely ignores all the marvelous databases that provide access to records. In the case of WikiTree, she simply misunderstood or did not read the site's terms and conditions. The short rant disguised as a book is full of grammatical, proofreading, and spelling errors. Not recommended.
