Au contraire. We have this set at the Mary Ball Washington Museum and  
Library (Lancaster, VA), and we DO use it-all the time. Don't be too  
quick to get rid of it. We find people on those CDs that you won't  
find using ancestry.com due to the many spelling errors on ancestry.  
It is a vastly superior *alternative* to what you may think is  
something better (and yes we also subscribe to ancestry.com).

If you are really intent on getting rid of it, please consider  
donating it to the nearest genealogical/historical  society/library.
