Ancestry doesn't sell your photos. It sounds like you created a public tree and added photos which give anyone access to your photos. If you didn't want to share those ph...

Ancestry - Only good for wealthy families who come from big cities

If your just a normal middle class citizen or lower then your wasting your time. You might be able to find a census with your peoples name but not much else. This is meant for people who come from either wealthy or political backgrounds, or if your people lived in a big city.

AncestryDNA provided me with absolutely no information that I did not already know. I have not traced my family history, but I do know where my grandparents came from. According to my results, I am approximately 3/4 "European Jewish," which is considered to be a...
