Genealogy subscription…so much choice

kolliesgenealogy:

As I mentioned on my other blog the other day was my birthday, and one thing I got was cash.  Now I wanted to subscribe to a genealogy subscription site, however cant choose one, so I was hoping for a little help?

Do I go for the obvious choice of Ancestry? Or do I go for a smaller site like The Genealogist, Genes Reunited,  or British Origins.

I you are subscribed to any of the sites or can recommend anygood alternatives I’d appreciate your thoughts.

Further, genealogical analysis shows that the concept of liberty is an ‘invention of the ruling classes’ and not fundamental to man’s nature or at the root of his attachment to being and truth. What is found at the historical beginning of things is not the inviolable identity of their origin; it is the dissension of other things. It is disparity.

Michel Foucault, “Nietzsche, Genealogy, History”

Suck it, libertarians.

My great-grandmother, Bridget Foley Mulligan Blair. I believe she was actually Irish, not Scottish, but I am having a hard time tracing her line. I know she was born in Tranent, Scotland, though. I have her eyes, cheek bones, and hair. :) But my glasses make my eyes look smaller than they are and that makes me sad.
