There used to be one....The address was
www.ancestros.com. I have tried to access it recently
with no luck. I now reach a webpage with a number of
links related to ancestry-but not specifically Mexican
genealogy. I'm guessing they either changed the link,
or discontinued it altogether.

I get the feeling that a membership to ancestry.com is valuable if your ancestry is from the US.  I'm first generation US born, so if that is true, it's of no consequence to me.  Also, I never hear anyone from the nuestros ranchos group reference it.  My research has led me to Spain on several lines.  Does anyone know if it is worthwhile for Spanish research?   Thank you for your help.    Alice
 

Ancestry.Com is not free and all info and data was obtained from researchers like me and my Esparza relatives. It should be free to us who gave them their data....

USE Rootsweb.com, this web site has the same info and data, and it is free!

Yes and no. There is some user-submitted stuff, but there are also primary documents like census, draft registration, border crossing, and so on that you won't get at Rootsweb. Mostly it's not too useful for Mexican research, but great for US and Canadian. They have about 35 collections in their card catalog for Spain, but it looks like mostly historically important events and nobility.

Hi Patti,

Thanks for your reply. For the information of those doing genealogy research on a budget--Social Security records are available on line for free, and one can easily access this web site from Rootsweb.com

Rootsweb has hundreds of FREE databases and info in their webpage's......And free Border Crossings data is also available online as well as within the LDS website. Also all libraries in the United States have access to Census information - in TX the program is accessible through TexShare, a free program for the US Census data from the beginning to 1930.

I will be forever grateful to RootsWeb for the data on the Ruiz de Esparza, the Romos de Vivar and the Munoz de Nava, etc etc family trees that have provided me with endless answers to my family and the missing links. There is a lot of data on the Family Tree Section of Rootsweb concerning families from Jalostotitlán, Jalisco, México and the Aguascalientes, Aguascalientes, México areas.

Ancestry.com does have some free information - they own Rootsweb.com. =)

That said, I agree with Patti in that there is value in it. The border crossing records and census data have proved invaluable to me. I recently connected with relatives who share my lineage but whose branches of the family had been "lost" to us. We didn't even know that their ancestor...my grand uncle, had crossed into the US. Now I have them all plotted and discover new branches regularly. If you have had no ancestors cross before you, Alice it probably would be a waste of your time to pay for Ancestry.com. You might also want to know that the LDS Family History Center I use has subscription membership and allow people to use it for research free of charge. For your consideration.

My parents were the first (on dad's side) to immigrate, while my mother's family never did.  I am the first of my family born in the US, so I think that beyond my family's border crossing (which I did find), I have no need for US research.  I was hoping that some group members had success stories to report with ancestry.com in dealing with Spanish research.  So far, I haven't heard members report on much success with Spain as we have in researching Mexico thanks to familysearch.  I sincerely hope this doesn't bring my family research to an end on those family lines.    
I will definitely explore rootsweb.com and see what it has to offer.  I am simply hesistant to pay the $200+ for something that might not have that much to offer me personally.  While the information I've acquired through Familysearch and the low charge for microfilm lending has proven itself priceless, I would gladly pay the subscription price if it afforded that much knowledge of Spain.  Again, thanks so much.   Alice

I found the border crossings there, but the FHC no longer subscribes.
