One of the premier sites for genealogy is Ancestry.com. Monthly and yearly fees are quite high and are divided by the national searches and international searches (today’s rates are: annual US yearly membership – $155.40, annual world membership – $299.40, monthly US membership – $19.95, monthly world membership – $29.95). I wouldn’t consider putting out money for a subscription until I have substantial information to funnel into the program.
I was, however, able to find the Ancestry.com message boards
Just a short exploration on the message boards took considerable time. It could be a good site to explore after I have gathered more family facts to use in my research.
