Coincidentally, Ancestry.com acquired ProGenealogists, a professional genealogical research company, in late 2010. Many people are hypothesizing that Ancestry.com decided that since it now had its own in-house researchers, there was no need to make space at the table for outside researchers. Two particularly good posts on the subject have been made by Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings
If you were a customer of Expert Connect, what should you do now? If you have already made contact with a professional researcher and you're happy with that person, stay with him. If you have not hooked up with a researcher yet, visit the Association of Professional Genealogists Web site (http://www.apgen.org/). You can search there for a researcher based on location or research specialty.
