I am confused about your news item that announces the addition of new premium online genealogy services available for free.
All of the sites that you mention in your article are fee based and require membership. Free indicates no cost. It seems to me that you are deliberately trying to confuse the readers with information that is manifestly not true. So, can you tell me how I can get the online services for free?

David, these services, which normally require a fee, will be offered for free when accessing them from a Family History Center.

Apart from Heritage Quest which seems to be US only, are they available world-wide?

How do I go to family history center when I can not find a listing in the phone book in Boise and Nampa, Idaho

Greetings, Ron! Heritage Quest has loads of books that cover European ancestors, just not any digitized documents like the US census and Revolutionary War Pension Applications. Many of the resources they have for Europe are wonderful including church registers, will indices and so on. It just takes a lot of work to find them sometimes as the search engine leaves much to be desired. I have thousands of dollars worth of research I have conducted on that site that I got for free through my public library.

I live in Sydney Australia. Please tell me where my nearest Family History Center is; or is there a website I can use for free?

What is a family history centre?

Just a FYI - I am a Family History Center consultant and we just received an email from the church that said: "Correction Regarding Premium Online Services

The premium online services described below and in the 29 May 2007 e-mail are not yet available. We will inform you as they become available.

To find a Family History Center, go to www.FamilySearch.org and use the "Find a Family History Center Near Your Home" search box. For United States & Canada, enter a state or province. All others, enter the country.
