This evaluation seems to list Ancestry as worst organization and as honorable mention in the best category. It leaves me questioning the value of this reviewer.

LOL Batbara…
It actually shows her excellent judgment; she understands that the world is not black and white, that an organization can be so disappointing overall that it deserves a lump of coal award, but that we should still appreciate and encourage what good they do, by highlighting that too.

It shouldn’t be too hard for anyone to “improve their products and services to deliver increased value to their users.”. It’s all a matter of opinion as to whether MyHeritage served my needs better in 2016 or if some other company served me better. Disclaimer: I rarely check my tree at MyHeritage. I haven’t paid so it’s just like ancestry. The information might be there. Or not.

I agree with Toni that it shouldn’t be to hard. It should be easy to do the right thing, but the RootsWeb disaster reminds us that it even easier to fail spectacularly….
