So I get an email from My Heritage. Excitement – they have great photos of people in my tree and if I want to see the full photo I can upgrade my account – pay money.
So if I pay them to upgrade I will get to see my own photos that I uploaded to Find A Grave in 2012.
What cheats. I don’t even like to write about them anymore – one little cheat to twist after another. I have wanted to help them grow and grow, but – who can with the push in this use-me-up way?
They also threaten this is the only chance to get this; if I reject it now it will never come again.
I cannot stand to see their stuff like this – this letdown of being used. The emails that come from them show how they grab and snatch.
The Find A Grave memorials for my father and sister show exactly when I uploaded the photos freely to Find A Grave and now MyHeritage wants to sell them back to me.
Find A Grave – a most wonderful database that will be kept free – we can hope – and is one of the countless databases you can access for free with a guest membership to their sponsor. Or just go to their site – so many people will find some family there. And if your family is not there you can make a free guest account and add the burial places of your family.
