It would seem to me that our friends at MyHeritage.com have hit on a great idea -- the concept of having a family "chip in" to pay the cost of enhanced membership. See the press release posted at GeneaPress.com, my source for genealogy news. Here we read "This is the first time a large scale online business has offered consumers the opportunity to share the cost of a subscription, and is an initiative that leverages the power and uniqueness of MyHeritage.com's family network."

I think this innovation truly supports the concept of family collaboration.
I wonder if Ancestry is listening?
Happy family tree climbing!
