I came along a Dutch blog post about Ancestry.nl. Is this for real?
During the Great War I spent a few years in the Dutch resistance, so I could make out most of the post. Here's a basic translation:
The Dutch Ancestry logo and tagline you saw were created by the message author, Bob Coret.
Coret was excited about the introduction of Ancestry's non-English sites in France and Italy so he sent a message to Ancestry's Josh Hanna, Vice President for Ancestry Europe, asking when Ancestry might offer a Dutch site. According to Coret, Hanna was non-committal, but expressed interest.
While Ancestry.nl would stand in direct competition to Coret's own website, he would still welcome Ancestry into the market. It would open up new records, increase the spending for digitizing records and increase sponsorship of genealogical events.
P.S. While the Insider won't admit it, translation credit goes to Babel Fish.
