I began using Ancestry in 2010 and after 4 years "completed" my tree. At that time I chose not to continue with my subscription for financial reasons. On several occasions I have renewed my subscription for short a duration. I think that the Ancestry application is terrific and I have also had my DNA analyzed. I do get regular emails with hints that I sometimes find quite intriguing but in order to pursue them I need an active subscription. I had no problem with the monthly fees while I was actively working on my family tree but now that I only need occasional access it seems like there should be an option for a long-term "maintenance" fee to continue to manage my tree and investigate new hints. This fee could be like a "perpetual" subscription that might have monthly limits for use. Since most of my tree involves countries outside of the U.S. - I need the world subscription and having to pay several hundred dollars a year for occasional access seems a bit excessive. A reasonable annual fee would likely keep users like myself much more active on an on-going basis.ReplyDelete
