My thoughts on item 2. When synched any notes, stories etc generated on Ancestry come to FTM and open in a web browser only. So I would wonder if you gave up your subscription if you would still have access to that information. This is my current question. I'm about ready to physically copy all that from Ancestry and re-enter it on FTM so I have a 'real' copy instead of a icon that opens to my browser. Would like to hear others on this.
