Before you do that, you should know that the Calgary Family History Centre
has a free subscription to all the Ancestry databases. Your only charge
would be a $1.00/hr fee for internet access at the centre. It may be worth
it for you to subscribe at home, particularly if you are doing US research.
There are some useful British records as well. I'm not sure what the
current subscription rate is, but I thought it was somewhere around $200 for
all the databases. Perhaps you should come down to the FHC and try it out
before you make a final decision.
