This week I will tell you how to make money from your genealogy web site. Yes, it is true: you can place genealogy data online about your own family tree although you can probably make more money by providing “how-to” information or even images of old records or even digitized books. You will quickly ask, “How much money can I make?” I can only answer, “It all depends.” You might only make enough to buy a cup of coffee, perhaps not even at Starbucks’ inflated prices. Then again, rumors float around claiming that a handful of genealogy-related sites are making thousands of dollars per month.
