Warning ! Do not waste your time!

No good points. It does not have any more information than you can search for free for example social security, census etc.When you cancel you will receive an email confirming your cancellation but 2 days later and every month after that your account will be charged. If you try to call you will be placed on hold, no one ever answers the phone. I am going to have to go to my bank and file.

In summary, I would not recommend Archives.com to a friend.

Don't waste you time let alone your money

The website looks impressive enough but the content just isn't there. I just signed up for the free trial today and I'm already cancelling it. I searched for information that I was missing and found nothing. Then I searched for information that I knew was out there in cyber space and easily found quite often free of charge. Like the social security death index. I entered several names and not one of them came up. I was so very hopeful about this site and now I'm so disappointed. If you're not a newbie to genealogy skip this one.

In summary, I would not recommend Archives.com to a friend.

Terrible search engine

The first day I tried it the site couldn't find someone that I could find through regular google search engines. Also does not have specific enough search engines to weed out the mess

In summary, I would not recommend Archives.com to a friend.

They keep billing my credit account.

I forgot about doing the trial offer and the next month (June 12, 2014) I received a monthly bill on my checking account for $7.95. Four days later (June 16) I received another monthly billing for $7.95.

I cancelled membership in June but received reply e-mail saying it would be cancelled effective July 18, 2014. The order id is 484931752.

I looked at my checking account today (July 17) and it shows another billing on July 14, 2014.
So I have been billed for another month but I have had no membership according to my account on the
Archives website since June.

I will be talking to my bank officer today.

In summary, I would not recommend Archives.com to a friend.

Don't waste your time

Found no valuable records on ANY of my ancestors. Kept refering me to Court Records I'd have to purchase additionally. Cancelled my free trial on the spot.

In summary, I would not recommend Archives.com to a friend.
