(But I don't think I've tried using it.)
Before you pay for access to a site, be sure to check to see if your library subscribes. You may also be able to use Ancestry at a FHC.
Ancestry.com you have to pay for nearly everything.
I use mainly ancestry.com myself, but go to other sites (rootsweb and familysearch) If I cant find what I am searching for on ancestry.
My husband is going to school online through University of Maryland and can access quite a lot of online sources through their library system.
We're in Georgia, I just tried the library system here. They have ancestry but you can only access it at the library but I was able to access heritage quest.
Is "sumi-masen" the right kind of "sorry" if you forgot something? I forgot you were overseas. Maybe a relative would let you "borrow" their library card number -- you can access the library services via the internet, even from far away Japan!
pdxwoman-Sumimasen is correct or gomenasi. Gomenasi is commonly used if you were in an accident, you would apologize, give the person you injured a small monetary gift (gomen) and then all would be forgiven.
I'm trying to get all my notes together with all my questions and research to look up on census' etc. I'm hoping if I'm somewhat organized, I can subscribe for a month and then go from there to see what I get. Time will be needed for hard copies of birth/death certificates so if I can subscribe a couple of times a year that would be great!
Thanks all for your help!

This is the way it works at the public libraries I patronize. I can logon their website, open their online database access and/or genealogy resources links, and peruse HeritageQuest.com and others.
In the case of Ancestry.com (and some others), I have to use a terminal that is physically located in the library or one of its branches.
This is the cheapest "Free Trial" anyone could hope for, that I know of. Its also quite possible you could locate help from someone in the library that could point out shortcuts and features that would take you weeks or months to find in a solitary setting; like at home, for instance.

Also WorldVital Records is adding databases everyday and their subscription rate is really low compared to Ancestry.
I am about to discontinue my Ancestry subscription because I generally get very frustrated with them overall. Their search engine leaves a lot to be desired. I would recommend subscribing for a couple of months early on in your search but after that, i think there are better options. Just my .02.
Thanks again for all your info.
I worry about it. I usually ask banks and others to come up with another security question. And I also try not to post info about myself or my parents in online trees. I'm not looking for my siblings or first cousins! --- haven't lost any of them.
I usually cut off my direct line for an online tree at my grandparents. Software may want you to start a tree with yourself, but you can usually ignore that.
And, of course, it is a no-no to post info on living individuals without consent. My mother would have skinned me alive if I'd posted her birthdate and maiden name. Her obit, with maiden name, is now online, but I still can't see any reason to put the info in a tree.
Q. How can someone get access to records that have been indexed by the partners earlier than the end of the restricted period?
A. Part of the agreement with our partners stipulates that members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will gain the ability to access the full collections of records published on their sites. We would like to be clear that members will be able to view these images free in nearly all circumstances. These same sites are available free to all researchers in the Family History Library and our more than 4,700 family history centers worldwide. The other way to gain access at this point is to subscribe to the partner services.
