Don't Tell Anyone But...

The editorial policy of this blog is to report on, defend and constructively criticize two major genealogical websites, Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org, and associated topics. The author attempts to fairly and evenly support both organizations, but believing readers have a right to know that a possible conflict of interest exists, he previously disclosed his employment by Ancestry.com.

Please be informed that the author's employment by Ancestry.com is coming to a close on 11-July-2008 and employment with FamilySearch.org will begin on 28-July-2008. Before and after this transition the editorial policy of this blog remains unchanged. The blog title, The Ancestry Insider, will also remain unchanged as it has become more closely associated with the author than with any other entity. The author remains an insider among those searching their ancestry and will take steps to assure that no confusion results.

NOTICE: The Ancestry Insider is independent of Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org. The opinions expressed herein are his own. Trademarks used herein are trademarks or registered trademarks of their respective owners. The Ancestry Insider is solely responsible for any silly, comical or satirical trademark parodies presented as such herein.

  1. From what you've been able to sense so far, do you anticipate any differences in FamilySearch's corporate attitude towards employee blogs vs. the one you experienced at Ancestry?

  2. Congrats Insider - very nice move.

    Once the church has indexed as much as Ancestry what to you suppose will happen? (since the church gives away the info for free and Ancestry charges) Is Ancestry.com doomed in one year, five, or ten?
