      They are both owned/operated by "The Generations Network":
      http://www.myfamily inc.com/
      Which also owns/operates rootsweb.com, myfamily.com, jiapu.cn (Chinese
      genealogy), and ancestry.* sites in the UK, Canada, Australia, Germany,
      Italy, France ans Sweden.

      And you can log into all of the sites with the same id/password.

      A more important question is...
      Which has more useful data, and what kind of subscription should you get?

      This really depends on what you are researching, but I would say that a
      "World Deluxe Annual" membership on ancestry.com gives you the best
      "bang for the buck", particularly if you have international ancestry.
      It gives you complete access to ancestry.com' s data (though not the
      largely redundant data on genealogy.com) .

      P.S. Many years ago, I had a membership at both, but after a while,
      there was little or nothing on genealogy.com that wasn't also on
      ancestry.com. .. and this was before the "grand merger". From looking at
      the site, It looks to me like nothing much new has appeared on
      genealogy.com since that time. Probably they are just maintaining it so
      that can collect subscription fees from those not familiar with
      ancestry.com.

      Hope this helps,
