Why Subscribe to Ancestry?
Glad you asked. Let me, the webmaster here at DistantCousin.com, explain why I think this
is a valuable tool. I can only speak from personal experience as to do otherwise would be
I decided one day to see what I could do with my father's mother's side since we had very little
information and had never expended even a little effort to research this line. I had already
subscribed to Ancestry for other research I had been doing so I plugged my grandmother's maiden
into the search box. I received a ton of hits because it is a common name but was able to quickly
weed out the off-target stuff and pull out an obituary for my great uncle. This obit was
nowhere else to be found on the web. From that I was able to determine the names of
my great grandparents. I used this information to search again. What I found was a way to get
government records which showed their parents' names. I then used this information to post
a query which connected me to a thoroughly researched line! Total elapsed time, about one hour!!
Actually it took several weeks to complete this research as it takes time to obtain government
records but it took only one hour of my time. Thanks, Ancestry.
