Ancestry and Geneology Online Websites and Research?

I am interested in your experience with geneology and ancestry websites like http://www.rootsweb.com and http://ancestry.com, etc. Most of my general web searches result in links to these sites and many of these sites require registration or a paid subscription. I don’t mind registering with one site, but I don’t want to be required to obtain a paid subscription to obtain info that is really free. I already use the main government resource site for ancestry and geneology, but I would like a site that I can trace everything at all at once. What site do you use and prefer?

Here are some great websites!

Used Ancestry.com free trial period and accessed as much as possible, copied the chart into MS word and then went to Ellis Island website to research further. Copy and pasted information into MS word. Also, some cemetaries are online to see where the ancestors are buried. Also, accessed for military records. What I did like about Ancestry.com is that it searchs and populates the family tree chart. I was able to go back as far as the 1600′s. I took those names and did further rearch using those names I did know. Get this, I found out I was related to Elizabeth Barrett Browning, my favorite poet.

I’ve used Ellis Island to trace my ancestry coming in from overseas.
