I feel really fortunate that our local library system has "AncestryPlus"
on their computers so I can search for free anytime the library's open.
However, they don't have MrSids and it's really annoying to deal with the
scanned images without that plug-in. I should probaby contact them about
that and encourage them to get MrSids loaded on the computers!!
I've debated about subscribing so I can search the site without leaving
home, but now that the price is skyrocketing, I just can't afford it!
