Fwd: [FHCNET] Ancestry.com subscriptions for FHCs
- Ancestry's response to my inquire about FHCs getting Ancestry Library
We appreciate your message.
There is no other possibility for FHCs other than the regular FHC account.
Proquest is prohibited because a Family History Center isn't an organization
unto itself. I am sorry.
If there is anything else with which we might assist you, please let us

Subject: [FHCNET] Ancestry.com <http://ancestry.com/> subscriptions for FHCs
I contacted ProQuest to see about getting an Ancestry Library Edition
subscription for our FHC. Maria, their public library sales rep, said
they were not authorized to sell to FHCs. She suggesed I contact
Ancestry.com <http://ancestry.com/> to find out more, which I did.
Ancestry's sales staff
were under the impression that we could subscribe through ProQuest.
After further checking, the sales rep suggested I email
fhcsupport@... <fhcsupport%40ancestry.com> to get a definitive
answer. I'm waiting to
hear back from them. However, I thought several of you on this list
mentioned being able to subscribe to Ancestry.com <http://ancestry.com/>for
Any info you can pass along would be greatly appreciated.
