I was excited when the invitation and 'great deal' for Family Heritage members came to me. My mistake was ordering the link without waiting and looking at it in detail. So far the experience has been bad. No matter how detailed the submitted data is, the results come back as 'Zero Results'. No matter which catagory is chosen the same results come back.
I used my father for a test...Exact name, birth, town, newspaper, death, and it comes back as Zero Results! His father owned a well known business in the city, prominent in business and organizations and still ZERO. I used myself looking for birth info in the newspaper...knew the name, birthdate, hospital, everyting possible and ZERO.
What a waste of time and money.
The hype made it sound like a genealogists dream for ferreting out detail info but so far it is pure frustration and I am not happy. I do not enjoy spending money for products that do not live up to expectation.
I had high hopes for being able to fill in some information gaps as well as find documentaion for facts but alas my family while having lived in the same area since the early 1800's and numbering in the hundreds, does not seem to exist.
My suggestion is Buyer Beware. I so wish that World Vital Records lived up to its name.
In summary, I would not recommend World Vital Records to a friend.
