Annual Fine Print

Once a year I like to make sure you know where I stand.

I am not a spokesperson for FamilySearch. I write the Ancestry Insider independently of my work at FamilySearch. In this column I call it the way I see it, sometimes disagreeing with FamilySearch, albeit trying not to get fired. I try to be helpful and supportive. If I criticize FamilySearch, I try to suggest how they might improve.

I am not a spokesperson for Ancestry.com. I do not work for Ancestry.com. The name “Ancestry Insider” does not apply to Ancestry.com. Again, I try to criticize constructively.

The Ancestry Insider is written independently of Ancestry.com and FamilySearch. The opinions expressed herein are those of the author, and do not necessarily reflect those of Ancestry.com or FamilySearch.

The Ancestry Insider may be biased by the following factors: 1) The Ancestry Insider accepts products and services free of charge for review purposes. 2) The author of the Ancestry Insider is employed by the Corporation of the President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, owner and sponsor of FamilySearch. 3) The author is a believing, practicing member of the same Church. 4) The author is a former stock-holder and employee of the business now known as Ancestry.com and maintains many friendships established while employed there. 5) It is the editorial policy of this column to be generally supportive of Ancestry.com and FamilySearch. 6) The author is an active volunteer for the National Genealogical Society.
