They Rarely Tell You What They Don’t Have

Fee-based genealogical database websites are great about telling you what they have. They are not so great about telling you what they do not have–because that will not encourage a person to subscribe to the service. The sites are not obligated to tell you what else could be “out there” that they do not have.

Never assume any site has “everything.” That’s true whether it is a fee-based genealogy site or a free one.
