When will you merge with Ancestry?

I have subscribed to Genes Reunited for quite a few years now but I think that has a better platform and is more widely used and seen. It makes sense to hook the two platforms together. This would save me re-entering all my data again and would be most convenient! Any chance?

No one at Genes looks at this board anymore. If you want to contact them you need to email them.

Genes Reunited is owned by the company that also owns Find My Past. The records on here are from Find My Past.

It is therefore highly unlikely that FMP would ‘merge’ with ancestry.

If you have a tree on here you can gedcom it into Ancestry.

I assume you have the more expensive membership - make sure your renewal isNOT automatic and then you can spend the money on an Ancestry sub. You can also gedcom your tree to FMP whose records are better than those available here.
