"The military records, which come from the National Archives and Records Administration, can be viewed at no cost until the June 6 anniversary of D-Day. Ancestry.com, a unit of Provo, Utah-based MyFamily.com Inc., spent $3 million to digitize the information as part of its $100 million investment in the Web site, Sullivan said.
'Google's doing a good job of organizing the world's information. We think we're doing a pretty good job of trying to organize the world's family history information,' he said.
Ancestry.com is the largest subsidiary of closely-held Generations Network, responsible for 760,000 of its 900,000 subscribers and the majority of its $151 million 2006 sales, spokesman Mike Ward said. The Web site, which costs $155.40 a year, allows users to upload personal family documents and map family histories from its 24,000 databases and titles."
