Ancestry.com Has a Biography Bot

cleverhack dot com noticed that Ancestry.com is sending out a bot to find biographical information on the web. From the MyFamilyBot Information Page:

What is MyFamilyBot? Why is it accessing my files?:
MyFamily is creating an index based on a powerful person-based biographical ranking engine that gives superior results over searches done using the more general purpose internet search engines. Ancestry.com indexes the biographic text and provides a search service that points users back to the originating website.
The bot seems to have been crawling as early as last spring.
