Is 'rootsChat' really FREE or is it like all other Ancestry websites which are money grabbing scams ?
Peter, if you meant that capital-A-ncestry, that could be where you have gone astray.

This site has resisted the behemoth. No connection with Ancestry dot anything.

RootsWEB, yes indeed, Ancestry.

Now how could this be a pay-to-play site, when there you are chatting out loud without paying? :D

I hope Peter has been able to read all the welcoming replies from so many RC members; it could be that not only can we help answer any queries he chooses to post and he can contact other people with the same family  history interests, but he may have special skills & experience himself to be able to help others in return - that's what we are about isn't it  :)

This is on the "how to use rootschat" board - "please don't post requests here").  :)

Yup, that's what I'd hoped I was saying. ;)

Just thought Peter might possibly have confused the two.

Well, I have enjoyed Rootschat for just over 12 years now, and not paid out a penny.

So when it says Free, it means Free!
