Here at Legacy Family Tree we give away a lot of stuff - free webinars, free technical support, even free software. Many genealogy societies, websites, libraries, universities and even speakers do the same. So the question is, should all genealogy be free?
Every genealogist, webinar viewer, and blog reader should read today's article published by Thomas MacEntee. He did a masterful job of explaining the topic. He begins with the parable of "well, you pay your plumber, don't you?"

Dick Eastman also wrote a fantastic article about this topic a little over a year ago. Please read his article by clicking here.
Here at Legacy Family Tree, we will continue offering our free webinars, free technical support, and even our free software. But we are only able to do it because of the great people and organizations we partner with, and especially because of the support of our wonderful customers - you!
