The price increase referenced may have been for the myFamily service, rather than for an Ancestry.Com account. The myFamily service can be viewed as a "front-end" to the family trees at Ancestry.Com. When a user in myFamily "Imports a Tree", a link is created to the tree in Ancestry.Com, but the tree is still maintained on the Ancestry.Com site.

The new pricing is for the myFamily Groups. It has to be paid only by one person within a Group. This price is separate from fees for Ancestry.Com which are required in order to build trees.

I always suggest that participants test first as individuals and compare
their results to others, before joining our project (at Ancestry).


I will probably be deleting my project at Ancestry before 1 July 2010,
because one member who subscribes to Ancestry has already been notified of new
subscription fee for projects. I won't pay a fee nor will I encourage my
project members to pay one.

At Family Tree those who order tests are automatically enrolled, but I
could offer to suppress DNA results until we know whether members match the
families they are supposed to match.

At both companies, however, results become part of the database whether
or not they are posted by the project, and those who have concerns about
privacy may object to this practice as much as anything else.
