Affiliate Product Transparency Statement

Effective from October 1, 2013, to the present day.

This platform is solely curated and managed by me, Leonard Smith III.

Endorsements of Affiliate Products
As someone deeply involved in storytelling and historical research, I've gathered valuable insights into documenting family history that could benefit fellow history enthusiasts.

I aim to offer a service to visitors by suggesting high-quality products that I've personally tested and purchased from reputable companies. I trust organizations for exceptional products, reasonable pricing, and excellent customer service.

I only vouch for companies and their offerings when I can confidently say they meet high-quality standards and offer good value.

Affiliate Membership Explained

I'm part of affiliate programs with certain companies. When I endorse a product and provide a purchase link, I earn a small commission if someone clicks through and makes a purchase.
Don't worry, this comes at no extra cost to you.

Non-Affiliate Recommendations
Not all companies I patronize have affiliate programs. Many products I suggest don't generate income for me; I recommend them solely because they meet quality standards and serve their intended purpose. If a product is affiliated, a disclosure will accompany the affiliate link.

Revenue Allocation

Proceeds from affiliate sales contribute to keeping this website's content free. A portion is reinvested into maintaining a small inventory of products I purchase and offer directly to you, ensuring quality and affordability.

Affiliate Partnerships Include:
- and
- iTunes

Note on Amazon Affiliation

We participate in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising initiative designed to enable us to earn fees by linking to Amazon and its affiliated sites.

About Advertisements

While I strive to keep ads unobtrusive, they are essential for the sustainability of Recording Your Family History. Please consider this before using ad-blockers or lodging complaints. Declining revenue has necessitated more assertive advertising strategies.

Closing Remarks 

Your satisfaction, this platform's integrity, and the products' quality are paramount to me.
