    I bet long term that FTDNA will be acquired by Ancestry.com... say sometime over the next 3 years.

    Let's see how this one pans out.
    Even if it is a good twin PE firm, there is always a learning curve, and they did not pay $$1.6 B for Anc. because they like surnames and the 1940 census. I am assuming they hope those little fluttering hint leaves turn to gold for them, one way another, good or bad twin scenario.

    The questions are what will happen to subscription rates, and our data, and confidentiality issues.

    Time to clean up the trees, read the hints and download to a Gedcom file, been meaning to do it any way.
