    Default Why is genealogy search site charging when the persons you look for are long ago dead?

    I've been doing family search for the past 3years and Ancestry gave 3 days free due to a special they were doing. Many other site say they are "free", but when you get in that site and start to search they cut you off and ask for money. It should be either free as they offer or just state that you have to pay instead of tricking people

    I expect they go to the lengths of collating all the information ,masses of it, and rightly wanting paying for it?????

    You don't have to pay for it on the internet.

    You are perfectly free to take a car/train/bus to the National Archives in Kew, or Preston Record Office or St Arseend of Nowhere's Church and look for the records yourself for free.
