Found Grandfather on 1930 Census

Since footnote.com has U.S. Census free to view for a limited time. I searched through the Censuses and found my grandfather Teila. He is in the 1930 Census. I discovered that he is much older than I thought when he moved to Hawaii from Samoa. His birth date is different then on records I have and he was a sugar farm worker. I also was able to download the image which is exciting so I can share it with my dad.
One feature on footnote I thought was cool was a box on the census image that can click on called "related to"
and it helps you connect to other family members on footnote who also are related to that same individual.
So if you haven't taken a look at http://www.footnote.com/ check it out.
