My personal opinion, regarding the USC Shoah testimony. I think it's great. My grandfather and his brother both recorded testimony, as did other family member's. I don't feel betrayed at all. Honestly all they have done was take what USC Shoah Foundation has on their site (indexed names, locations, etc) and transferred at no charge so they could be found Ancestry. It actually helped me find info I didn't find previously. I don't know if it's because of Ancestry, or perhaps I never searched previously on the USC Shoah Foundation site. As long as both parties are clear about what is going on and everything remains free, I personally do not have issue.
