Read more about the genealogy TV trend here.

Love the blog. I was really excited about the Genealogy Bank promotion, but it isn't what it seems. To be honest, their deal is very misleading and it is shady that the site doesn't provide the actual details of the offer until you provide your contact information. Their regular monthly rate is $19.99 and their regular annual rate is $69.95. The current promotion is actually 75% off the monthly rate, so the cost is actually $55.95 for the year. That's $15 off the regular rate -- this is about 21% off the normal annual rate.

It is a good deal, but not a great deal. I'm going to pass at this time.

Following up on my comment from yesterday, GenealogyBank now has my contact information and is sending me email. Excerpt from message: "We noticed you did not complete the sign up process for a GenealogyBank membership... Limited Time Offer... Save 20% Now". Interestingly, when you click the link to load their page, their message of 75% that is visible via the link provided yesterday has been replaced with the "20% Off" message, but adds the "only $55.95" statement. It is funny that their 75% and 20% discounts end up being the same price. Their 75% off promotion doesn't list the actual price until you give them your contact information, but the 20% off promotion is honest with sharing this detail.

In the end, this is still a very shady promotion of their service.
