Ancestry.com Discontinue Some Products

Ancestry.com announced that it will discontinue some of its services by September 5, 2014 to focus on its "core products and mission".

The affected products are:

MyFamily.com - the family website service
My Canvas - the photo book publishing service
Genealogy.com - the site will remain online with some content
Mundia.com - the worldwide family tree site (you must subscribe to Ancestry.com to contact tree owners
Y-DNA and mtDNA testing - Raw data can be downloaded.  This leaves only Family Tree DNA available for these types of tests among the three most popular DNA testing companies.

The blogg genealogyinsider has detailed the situation and the site has a link to Ancestry.com's blog post on the subject.
