The Ancestry.com avalanche approaching the Carpathian Mountains?

... or what?

Wishing to get some genealogy entertainment I went to George G. Morgan's and Drew Smith's Genealogy Guys Podcast site. One item in the Nov 19 episode contents caught my eyes: Ancestry.de.

K, checking it turns out that a new site has arisen, Ancestry.de. What makes it different from other Ancestry sites is that this is the first non-English database site of MyFamily.com, Inc.

I recall seeing job postings where MyFamily sought foreign content acquisition managers in BYU's Center for Family History & Genealogy's Newsletter. Well, apparently, these were posted not without reason.

Ancestry.de offers a neat collection of online sources, already. Some of them are available after free registration.

Just for the heck of cybersquatting, I made a search on the domain name ancestry.hu (.hu stands for my country, Hungary). Guess what! ancestry.hu has been registered on Oct 27, 2006 by Myfamily.com, Inc. I don't know if they have plans to develop a site there or it was taken just in case.
