I have noticed lately that Ancestry.com have been advertising on the tv. No doubt to all the baby boomers who have not yet started to research their family tree.
While i think that Ancestry is a good website and i am a member myself, there are free sites out there that can help you on your journey of discovering your family history.
One greatly improved site is Family Search.Org.Perhaps it is of more use to the more experienced researcher or maybe it just feels that way as i have been using this free site for a long time. Some of the records available are the same as Ancestry.com and they are free .So take a look at this site ,i would like to know what you think.
