"I use GenealogyBank and have subscribed for about six months," says
Melinde Sanborn, F.A.S.G., Secretary of the American Society of
Genealogists. "I find the historical newspapers collection absolutely
invaluable. For a client who had searched in vain for 20 years, with one
mouse click, I found a death notice in a
2-year-run of an obscure newspaper that I'd never have looked in without
this search capability."
Kemp adds, "Everyday we hear from visitors who have learned something new
about their ancestors. Recently John Murphy of Elon, N.C. wrote to tell us
within an hour of joining he discovered his 4th Great Grand Father, Thomas
C. Donn, who happened to be a justice of the peace in Washington D.C. It's
exciting helping families discover new details about their ancestors'
