Ancestry.com Research accessibility
I question the reasonableness of allowing users to list sources referencing Ancestry.com as a document source, and object to the use thereof. In order to view Ancestry.com records it is necessary to become a member and pay annual dues in order to view documents and sources contained therein. Listing Ancestry.com as a source is serves no purpose at all. My research reaches an end when I come across a source document that is not a source document and it cannot be verified by non-members of Ancestry.com.
My personal preference would be to see Family Search (a free research facility) discontinue its agreement with Ancestry.com as long as Ancestry requires membership to access data. ( I am not a member of Ancestry.com and will never become a member as long as they compete with Family Search Organization as a business enterprise for profit).
