I have never paid attention to World Connect...there are just too many
organizations that are interested in making a buck, and I have avoided them.
My investment so far is about $200, with Family Tree DNA, not at all
counting the cost of the Internet...actually, I got onto the Internet for
other reasons, such as Iraq, Iran, corruption in government...by they way,
read "Cobra II, The Assasins Gate, and American Theocracy", that I got from
Today's Meet the Press was good, as usual.
I think Family Tree DNA will come to be the most reliable authority in
genealogy in the world...pretty difficult to argue with the genes!
