Review Summary:

SEARCH FOR YOUR ANCESTORS! If you're curious about your family history and trying to find your roots, there are resources online you can do research. One of these sites is a site called archives.com. They actually do provide a 7-day trial where you can explore their services by paying nothing for 7 days and afterwards if you decide to keep the service they do charge you a monthly fee, currently they show a $7.95 a month charge for continuing the service which is less than $100 a year and quite reasonable if you do have this interest. They claim to have 2.6 billion records to search. Most probably if you know you're roots are in United States they should have records of your family members arriving in to U.S. They have recently added the 1940 census to their records.

Ancestory Search, Family Trees: Archives.com searches include, birth certificates, death certificates, marriage records, obituaries, yearbooks, some military records, burial records, in another word whatever information is in public domain is being included in their database for you to search. Some records include photos and original documents and they have records as old as 1700's. They do have some records from overseas as well where you can trace your roots before they arrived in the United States. You have to see the level of your interest in the subject in order to evaluate the value. Obviously if you have children and you want to share your background and family or if you want to leave a legacy then it is a worthwhile effort to do the research and pay the fee.

Pros
