Well Arlene, I would hope others would join us in our frugal approach to genealogy research. Maybe that is why I can afford to go to more genealogy events, conferences, etc., and continue to learn by networking and attending sessions from knowledgable researchers. Folks need to look at the value they are getting from the societies, organizations, and online subscription sites and see if it is justified. I've certainly made hard choices and adjustments, particularly over the past several years. The painful scream you and others may have heard a week or so ago was me when I was writing checks for 6-7 memberships that expired at the beginning of the year. Ouch!
The 150 some odd dollars that can be saved by not being an Ancestry member can buy some vital records, SS applications, pension files, etc., that are needed to move a genealogist's research forward.
Being cheap has its rewards.
