Putting a Price on SmartMatching
8/1/2005
GenCircles introduces "premium" subscription.

Next time you visit GenCircles <www.gencircles.com> to search for ancestors, be prepared to pull out your wallet. You now need a subscription to access and download user-contributed family tree files from the Web site's 90 million-name database.

GenCircles' hallmark SmartMatching technology has made it a popular online genealogy tool. When you upload your family files to GenCircles, the site compares people in your file to those in the database, weeding out irrelevant results and letting you see where other users' information overlaps yours.
