I belong to the Kent list on rootsweb.  One of the other listers has mentioned that several libraries in the UK are now subscribed to Ancestry.com and anyone registered at the library can use this free of charge.  We are interested in trying to see if there would be a demand in Kent for this and have already approached the Kent Libraries central office to enquire about whether they have any plans to offer this service.  Obviously if it would be in demand this may well have a bearing on whether they decide to take up a subscription.

I would be happy for any responses to come to me as a personal message rather than clog up the list.

From what I've read on another forum, Kent libraries has now taken out a subscription to ancestry (available to view in the actual libraries)

Liverpool in particular has for quite a little while now, but the motto is "Use it or Lose it" as they need to know the subscription is worthwhile.

Not sure if the Liverpool/Merseyside/Lancashire lists at Rootsweb are aware that Ancestry.com can be accessed free of charge at local libraries - I will check with the various list admins and ask if they have any objection to mentioning it on the posts.
