ROOTSWEB was given to ANCESTRY with the provision that it not charge any fee for anything on the site. However, ANCESTRY has posted this on Rootsweb relating to the SOCIAL SECURITY DEATH INDEX:
"Due to sensitivities around the information in this database, the Social Security Death Index collection is not available on our free Rootsweb service but is accessible to search on Ancestry.com. Visit the Social Security Death Index page to be directly connected to this collection."
Meaning that the SOCIAL SECURITY DEATH INDEX is available at ANCESTRY because they have no sensitivity or they just want the money!
PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS ISSUE FOR FREE GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH!
