On the [xxx], I found a 1910 US Federal Census for New York,There is a Family History Center at 3105 S Broadway, Fort Myers, Florida.
They're open Wed. through Fri., 9am-4pm. It costs $3.25 to rent the
microfilm. If it's impossible for you to visit the FHC, I can view
the film at a location near me. It may not be any help if the original
page was in bad shape, though.
Anyone can find where the FHCs are by going to
They're staffed by volunteers and usually have limited hours. The ones
near me at least are open on most Saturdays. Since they put their
catalog online, I've been able to search for the films I need at home
ahead of time & then I just bring the film information to the center. It
takes two trips: one to order and one to view. Not as convenient as
zipping online, but very valuable indeed because of the variety of
materials. I encourage everyone with an FHC nearby to check the catalog
& see what may be of use in your own research.
