A few months later I did my DNA test through Ancestry.com and guess what. Yep, I couldn't view the family trees from anyone except my own.When I click on the link, it sends me automatically to a membership screen (see below). All I wanted to view was a tree that someone created and posted in the public trees. Why does this require a subscription? Why does Ancestry think that my research should only be viewed my members?
Since my DNA results are there, I do still have an account. But I will not be purchasing a membership anytime soon. Frankly, Ancestry has gotten so huge that even a basic search returns too many results to manage because it includes tons of internet sites as well. So if you are interested in finding relatives via DNA testing, I would recommend using a different company.
