World Vital Records will always have free content on its site, however, when they launch their subscription service with a billion records, a new world of content will be available. Back in June, World Vital Records announced its plans to become the number two player in the genealogy industry.
"Of course I recognize that this is no small task, but building this Web site is something that I feel compelled to do. Our goal is to develop a subscription service that is affordable and fits the needs, that are currently not being met, of our genealogists," said Paul Allen, CEO, World Vital Records.
When Paul shared his vision for World Vital Records, he also emphasized that he wanted to keep subscription prices low and affordable -- he didn't want people to be restricted from finding their ancestors because they couldn't afford it.
With the launch of the subscription service, the first 5,000 people who sign up will receive two years for the price of one. The cost for the subscription will only be $49.95, that's less than $1 per week!
