Running this website entails several costs as well as a large amount of time. In order to financially support the site there are two choices:
- A monthly fee
Option #2 allows you to access information for free. Since I know that many people who use the site are on a limited or set income, I have chosen #2 in order to keep the cost at zero. That means, though, that you’ll see advertising on the site. Some of it may be an obvious ad in a sidebar and some of it less obvious such as an affiliate link. I created this disclosure policy in order to be transparent in how I use advertising to support the costs associated with the site.
I love genealogy and I love sharing what I’ve learned with you. Providing valuable resources and experience is a priority for me. I would like to continue doing that and at this point advertising allows me to keep the site and all of the site content free.
Affiliate Links — There are occasions when I am compensated if you purchase a product using one of my special links. I never recommend ANYTHING that I have not purchased myself and found to be of excellent quality. There have been many occasions when I have paid full price for an item that I can then recommend to you in a way that you receive a discount. To me, that’s a win-win. When it comes to recommending anything, I will always give my honest opinions, findings or experiences. You should assume that the links in posts are some type of affiliate or referral links even though they may not be.
If you purchase a product after clicking an affiliate link, my site receives a small percentage of the sale at no extra cost to you. Purchasing through affiliate links is an easy, painless way to help support this site.
Lastly, the views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely mine.
