A press release from the New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) and The Generations Network this past week announced that they are teaming up to provide for NEW Subscribers to NEHGS, a membership combination to both Ancestry US Deluxe Subscription and NEHGS for the price of $155.40 for an annual membership, resulting in a savings of $75.00. The NEHGS subscription is normally $75.00 and the Ancestry US Deluxe Edition subscription is $155.40 per year. As I see it, you are getting a free NEHGS subscription. You may not think that is much savings, but the NEHGS is the oldest genealogical society in the United States and has a vast collection of information for you to research including Canada, Maine, Vermont, England and Ireland to name a few. If you are thinking of subscribing to Ancestry, it would be worth your while and wouldn't cost you a penny more to subscribe to the New England Historic Genealogical Society and Ancestry together making the information available for research to you more extensive. Unfortunately, this applies only to those that are new subscribers only and not those that are already members of NEHGS or subscribing to Ancestry.com. Please note that this offer is only available until December 31, 2007, so if you are interested in this subscription, it would best to subscribe sooner than later.
When I went to the NEHGS website, I was able to locate with ease the subscription button for the combination, but when I went to the Ancestry site, there is no mention or link to the subscription combination. I am not sure why there is a disconnect between the announcement by The Generation Network and placing information about the teaming up with the NEHGS; it could be because the announcement is new and they haven't had time to update their subscription services. If you would like to investigate the offer for NEHGS and Ancestry further, please click NEHGS and Ancestry Team Up. If you click on this link, you will be able to view the benefits of the NEHGS subscription in addition to more information about the US Deluxe subscription at Ancestry.com.
