    "Ancestry is actually a company that was founded over 30 years ago, so they know their stuff and they've been a while. Based out of Utah, it actually started to serve the LDS (Mormon) community, for whom genealogy is very important, so they're quite exacting. Their services comes in different tiers which have different products, but the family tree maker actually comes included in all tiers. That being said - there is no free service here, you're going to be paying at LEAST $20 a month. However, if you're into genealogy they are the top online service around and really can't be beat. Having used their service before myself, I would definitely recommend them to anyone who's interested in checking out your family tree."

    "Hope Chest is mainly for the FamilySearch.org website users to make their experience less tedious. For regular people, I think there are some very nice alternatives more suitable specifically for family tree making purposes. "
