Genealogy I am doing it, my genealogy!
Any time a company gets bought by another company the ones who start sweating
are the employees. Transactions like this always imply restructuring - force
fitting two companies into one - and that always results in layoffs. I suffered
through about 25 layoffs at Novell and the biggest ones always happened after
acquisitions. Ancestry is a great company and I hope it remains great - just get
ready for a bumpy ride for a while internally.
I have been a member of Ancestry Com for a long time and have always found it
to be top class with information.If sold, the new buyers will have a hard
job to retain the Service and 'Goodwill'
