      No, ancestry.com is a publicly traded for profit company which owns several different genealogy outfits but family.search is is not one of  them.  A non-profit company familysearch.org was established and is run by the Mormon Church. While ancestry.com is headquartered in Provo, UT it has no connection to the Church though ancestry and familysearch do on occasion take on joint ventures I believe.
       
      Google: "who owns ancestry.com" to read the article on them at wikipedia. You can do the same with familysearch.org.
       
      Another way to put it is ancestry.com charges you while familysearch.org is free.

      If I’m not mistaken Ancestry owns Family Search which they are both owned by the LDS.

      Ancestry also has Jackson County up and running. I found their site to be much easier to view than Family Search, also.

      It looks like most if not all the 1940 Jackson County images have been loaded at www.myheritage.com
      No index as yet at any of the websites. They are listed by Election Precinct (ie Dutton, Rosalie) so you
      should be able to find your people if you know where they lived.
