Thanks. As to the Fold3, now that you say it's also owned by, I'm really ticked.

I've been an Acom subscriber since they first started. I've pretty well picked clean the bulk of my ancestors. Each year, I have to think long & hard about $299 for my renewal. My biggest issue with continuing is the lack of useful new info available.

To find that Acom owns additional info & wants even more than my $299 is a big pill for me to swallow. If Fold3 is, in fact, solely about the Revolutionary War, how much useful info would I expect to find? I'd bet half the subscribers don't even have a Revolutionary War ancestor in their tree! I know of 3 direct ancestors in my family & at least 2 who were brothers to direct ancestors but I can't imagine what info there is to be gleaned for MORE money.

I don't know about you, but money is tight & inflation is killing me. I'm on a fixed income & don't have spare funds to throw around. I am sorely disappointed in Acom. Is this how we can expect other "new" info to be obtained, by paying ala carte over & above the world subscription?


Sorry, I know it's not your doing, there's just no one else to vent with/at, lol
