>>> I'm now living on fixed income and can't afford the $22 plus being charges a month by Ancestry.
Download Legacy Standard (Free) Edition sofware and build your family tree in your own software, on your own hard drive, that you then upload to free sites on the www if you want it online.
I use Legacy and upload to Rootsweb WorldConnect. I have done it that way for ten years and works great for me, great software, and all is free and simple to use.
I do subscribe to Ancestry.com for the use of the research tools only.
Family Search has great free research tools, most censuses, and is all free. Not as good as Ancestry for info but free and okay.
RWWC and Ancestry are one in the same, linked up, but separate too.
