Sure.... I live in Gloucestershire, England, (where we have all the data
<g>) and my nearest LDS family history Centre is only 22 miles from
where I live....

However... one has to book to get onto a fiche reader... and there's
usually a waiting list of 7 weeks to get onto the reader in an evening

In those terms, Sydney's FHC would be easier. ;-)
Come to think of it... I may be there sometime next month.
