The library edition and the personal edition are different and one difference is the
newspapers. If you will send me the particulars on what you found in the Fresno Bee,
I'll be glad to get that and forward it to you.

Subject: [SOG-UK] A query re access to Ancestry records
Date: Saturday, May 23, 2009, 10:53 AM
I've been using the online access in my local library to look up a few things on
Ancestry. But I've hit a slight problem. I can search at home, find things I want to
look at. But not being an Ancestry subscriber, I can't view the record itself, just
the details returned by the search. So I've been searching from home and noting what
I find to look it up online in the library.
Current examples of searches to follow up are newspapers entries in the Fresno Bee from
Califonria circa 1920 - 40.
But I have just been to the library and the newspaper - although listed in a successful
search from home - is not listed as an available publication online on Ancestry via the
local library access.
I suspect this is down to a combination of differences between Ancestry.com
memberships and probably the open library acccess offers some restrictions on what can be
accessed. But it is odd that it doesn't even get listed on a greyed out and
unavailable basis - that might show the value of subscribing.
Anyway - I was wondering whther Ancestry access online at SoG might offer any different
and more extensive rights or was likely to be of the same type as my local council
library. Anyone know?
I could subscribe to Ancestry but would prefer not to as it's quite a lot of cash for
the occasional use I'd make of it.
