I have a comment about the "so-called records" that Ancestry has been posting as "new records". For the most part, these are not records, these are texts of old books that were found in genealogy libraries. In my opinion, a record is just that, a public record in an image such as marriage records, death certificates, probates, wills, etc-not someone's old book, sometimes with only an index showing where to get the record and not the record itself. Many of these old books were already available on Genealogy.com so all they had to do was migrate them over to Ancestry.com and "voila" a "new record".
