To view the trees at ancestry.com, the viewer has to purchase subscription. I am wondering about RM's online publishing. How does a viewer get access to my online publishing data? I assume by my providing them privately my URL???? Would it be free for him?

Yes, you share the URL and they see it free.

There are public Ancestry trees available freely, I believe. You need the subscription to be able to access the source databases and other features.

You can go to the nearest Family History Center to use ancestry.com. for free.

It's my understanding, if you have an Ancestry subscription and have a tree on Ancestry, you can invite others to view your tree. They can view as a subscribed member themselves, or can register as a guest to view for free. I haven't delved into this any further, but it sounds like viewees don't necessarily have to buy a subscription simply to view a tree.
