This website, genealogy-made-easier.com, is written and edited by me, Margaret Emerson. This website may accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.
The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post may not always be identified as paid or sponsored content.
I may sometimes be compensated to provide opinions on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though I may receive compensation for my posts or advertisements, I will always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products.
The views and opinions expressed on this website are purely my own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
This website does contain content which might present a conflict of interest. This content may not always be identified.
This website sometimes hosts Google Adsense ads on its pages. I am unable to choose which ads appear that are served by Google Ads.
In addition, this website sometimes has double underline link ads. These links are part of a pay per click advertising program called Infolinks. Infolinks is an In Text advertising service: they take my text and create links within it. If you hover with your mouse over these double underlined links, you will see a small dialog box containing advertisement related to the text marked. You can choose to either move the mouse away and go on with your browsing, or to press on the box and go to the ad page which is relevant to the text.
Sometimes I recommend products for which I receive a commission if you purchase the product through a link or banner ad provided on my site, which are known as affiliate products.

I review various products on this website from time to time, telling you about my (or a reader's) experiences with the product.
In these reviews I am honest about my own experiences, and disclose when the information provided to you is based on information from other sources, such as opinions a reader has shared with me.
I will not shy away from a negative review if one is called for. I will also not inflate my views of the product for monetary gain.
That way you can really make an informed decision about various genealogy products and sources, to see if you want to try them out yourself.
If I accept a free sample of a product for review, such as from a manufacturer or seller, I will tell you this in the review, in compliance with all FTC regulations regarding receipt of such samples. In addition, if I am compensated for my time for doing the review, I will also disclose this information.
In addition, no matter whether the product reviewed is received for free, or purchased by me, my review will be honest about the quality of the product, as it worked for me.
I am an ethical website owner, and will always attempt to conduct my website as such.
If you would like to discuss anything with me regarding this disclosure, please contact me using my contact page.
