Ancestry's Story

A number of genea-bloggers have provided the announcement about cancelling the access to Ancestry at the LDS Family History Centers.

Leland Meitzler's take is here, while Dick Eastman's is here. Dick provides some commentary about the business arrangements and some good reasons why Ancestry made this move.

It looks to me like made this happen for business reasons, but had tried to reach an understanding with the FHL, to no avail.

My other comments from Friday still stand, since I addressed them from the user's point of view.

I'm sorry I've been a bit light this weekend - my daughter's family with the two grandsons (ages 3 and 1) came on Thursday and things have been hectic and fun.
