archives.com, is a big rip off, once your subscription has started you have to pay a fee to cancel as usual the plot thickens, if you used your checking account #ss it is like cancelling a check to stop payment, this company plays with your money, it is not worth it.

I am very disappointed in Archives.com . after 5 pages of searching, I was directed to a 7 day free trial and after two more pages I was requested to give this unknown my personal information and a credit card number. It took me several minuets to get the name of Archives.com whom was requesting this information from me. I DO NOT GHIVE MY INFORMATION TO ANYONE UNLESS I CAN IDENTIFY THEM. I am going to call this a SCAM because of the refusal to identify them selfes

After one-hour of searching I was unable to find even the simplest piece of information that I knew to exist. I then tried to obtain information that had been located on other services, i.e., data on my marriage. Archives could not find it. I know it took place since I was there!

This site is a scam and please stay far away from them. They also charge an arm and a leg for certificates through their so-called site that is attached to Archive.com and its background.usa. I paid for "critical mail" and the search for the marriage certificate,totaled $80 when the actual cost is only $15.00 if you go directly to the City of NY site....huge scam artists working there - I believe its only 2 people in their customer service. Do Not send your form to them in Denver, Co. which they request, so they can scam and rob you of money you don't need to spend.

I have had really good luck in their newspaper archives but unfortunately they limit you to 10 searches per day with a 40% off offer to then join NewspaperArchives.com for another $71 per year... nowhere on their site or Terms of Use did I find notification of this limited access... in fact, original offer states "UNLIMITED" access for $39.95... beware!

O stars not available to choose! They published user info I gave looking for my elderly and possibly deceased aunt AND info I put on Facebook. Hell I couldn't even find my relative through court records. Not like I'm hiding but it IS the principle of it! Nothing is sacred anymore. What if a stalker was trying to find someone. Good move MyLife. You're as low as low can get. Publish THIS, creeps! Like Ancestry.com? Not hardly. They're helping people find dead ancestors which helps people feel good, hopefully about themselves. Dead people can't be hurt, sort of. I don't like their agenda. Sneaky.

A one star rating was given because there is no minus ratings available . This site is just a coin slot for the other genealogy sites. It is worse than useless and a waste of money and time, Don't waste yours here but go to FamilySearch.com, the LDS site, and it is free.

Was a member for years, but couldn't find anything on my ancestors that I couldn't find for free somewhere else on the 'net. They use info other people have voluntarily submitted and have the nerve to charge for it and make $$! Try www.rootsweb.com--much better!
