- May 17, 2010Hi Janet,
The correspondent is the head cataloger for Slovakia. He wrote me later
today to say that all microfilming has been completed and that the films
have been released. However, not every film has a catalog entry or an
accurate catalog entry.
There is a heavy FHL effort to review and update the catalog for greater
accuracy. It's also possible that the catalog entry was not "released"
for public viewing. This is generating new "appearances".
Because of the heavy updating (even for minor things), I have not been
able to get a "difference report" that is worth reading. It appears that
most entries have been updated. The best advice is to keep checking.
The net effect is the same for you and I. It appears to be a new film for
us. So keep watching!
