Go to your local library and ask about the Tex Share program.
If they subscribe, they can give you a username and password to log onto:

Once you logon you wil see HeritageQuest online.
Click on that, then on Census records to get to the regular search page. I used the Advanced Search page to select Brewer 1910 Alabama and Tallapoosa Co. to find your family. It is really neat. Once I was searchig for someone with the unusual first name of Elmo and couldn't find him searching with his last name, so I left off teh last name and just seaarched for Elmo in the right county and state, and up he popped with his last name misspelled! I've even searched for other families that migrated from the same state as my ancestors, who settled in the same community, figuring there
might be some connection.

Good Luck,
