Levi & Korsinsky is investigating the Board of Directors of Ancestry.com (“Ancestry.com” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGS: ACOM) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of the Company to Spectrum Equity Investors V, L.P.--a company owned by the private equity firm Permira--and co-investors comprised of Ancestry.com’s CEO and CFO.
