While it's obvious this company has more archives it's seach engine is horrible. Now if you have hours and hours to kill then have at it but I myself, when I already know a specific area and time frame and input that information I expect to see only whats in those parameters.Their search can't seem to control that and gives way to many options to wade through.
I purchased this membership with the sales pitch being I would get more than other similar sites. I purchased a two year plan in good faith and it was a very expensive gamble as I've gotten very few results for my time and effort compared to Ancestry.
CAUTION!!! This membership is basically like most you join today. You are promised the world and get nothing but frustration. If you try and back out before the 30 day money back quarentee they will go out of their way to assist you with your search and once your past the 30 days, GUESS WHAT, kiss your money gooby as you will not get a prorated refund. This is the 3rd. company I've been burned by in three years.
Overall Ancestry whom I've been with for over 10 years is a much better valuefor your money.
In summary, I would not recommend World Vital Records to a friend.
