My bank balance was thin and my patience with paying the faceless corporate entity was even thinner. Learn how I found free substitute records for many of the records I used to pay for at Ancestry.com, and how I discovered some new sites as well. My temporary "divorce" forced me to examine my genealogy from a different viewpoint with a fresh perspective. You, too, can recharge your genealogy, and save a few pennies as well.
