      On ancestry.com I have found more information about my Slovak and other families than I have ever before. My intent was to join for one year and work in it every day and it has paid for itself many times over.

      What is in the full package of Ancestry.com? Our libraries have a
      subscription, and it has the census info for US and UK, immigration
      data, with Ellis Island and other ports, and there's also an "insert"
      with dozens of links to various databases.
