To use ancestry.com free service for the 1930 ancestry.com census you
have to visit their FHC (Family History Center). They have an agreement worked
out with them. This service is available for no fee to the users who use their
computers at the LDS Library (FHC) in our area, Mesa, Arizona. I called the
FHC and inquired as to this service. Some other areas may charge for use of
their computers. They do not in Mesa.
The only thing they charge for (FHC) is 10 cents a copy to print out any
pages you might want. However, you can take your own disk to save information to
and print from home.
