- Jan 9, 2005Hi Mabel,I find that Ancestry online is great for Census material from 71, 81, 91, 01 UK Census. The number of auxiliary family members that I wouldn't have spent a lot of money on finding are now resting happily in the branches of my family tree. The only BMD available are the indexes that FRBMD have already transcribed, and some extra names from Ancestry's transcriptions. I don't subscribe to the American data so have no comment. The 1880 US Census is free for all who belong to Ancestry. I have found a couple of links in One World Tree but have not followed them up. In my estimation I would rather do my own research and reach my own conclusions. I must admit that the charges are very minimal to access One World Tree. I have no knowledge of the Millennium Site.Gloria Gray Winnipeg.----- Original Message -----From: MabelTo: dist-gen@...Sent: Sunday, January 09, 2005 11:47 AMSubject: FW: OneWorldTree

I have just recently purchased Family Tree Maker and as a bonus feature, you get a one year subscription to Ancestry.com but unfortunately, this does not give you full and total access to the information on their web site.
So my question is; What is the experience of members to subscribing to other sites on the Ancestry.com web page (specifically the OneWorldTree and the Millennium sites).
Is it worthwhile, do either of these sites provide new and genuine information or am I better off doing my own research and follow up.
It seems that Ancestry.com and other similar sites just re-cycle material that is already around from other free sources or sources like departments of vital statistics that would provide (albeit for a fee) the same info.
