I use Ancestry's website http://www.Ancestry.com for my personal genealogy
searches. They use the DjVu format for the complete collection of the U.S.
Federal Census 1790-1930 (thousands of rolls of scanned microfilm images
containing several hundred million persons), and their Historical Newspaper
Collection, maps and many other collections.
