I am an ecstatic GenealogyBank subscriber. My family is from a little coal-mining town, and we certainly weren't among the town's most prominent residents. But you wouldn't believe the hundreds of articles about my family I have found in GenealogyBank. And they just keep coming! I've found obituaries, marriages and birth (and death) dates of little children I never knew existed. I discovered that my Dad's mother used to put on musical productions using neighborhood children, and that my Dad was in one at six months of age! These were written up in the newspaper! I could go on and on with interesting finds I have made. I am truly overwhelmed. GenealogyBank is one of the best investments I have ever made.
