Dee’s Genealogical Journey » Blog Archive » No Personal Genealogy Right Now…: "5. Rootsweb had originally offered free webspace for all USGenWeb Counties. While this seems like a nice gesture, many in the project feel that since Rootsweb is now a part of a large organization, with investors who aren’t even interested in genealogy, it is no longer a generous, no-strings-attached offer as it may have once been.

as an ancestry subsacriber I pay for GenWeb too

6. One reason they feel the way I described in #5 is because there have been quite a few claim that information from there personal USGenWeb County site was harvested and placed behind a pay-site."

Evidence please

You said that as an ancestry subscriber you pay for genweb too? USGenWeb is free...it's ran completely by volunteers who offer it up to everyone for free.

As for evidence on the other, just do a google search you'll find it all over the place
