      Hello from Rene Dussome:

      Gordon Watts, Co-Chair of the Canadian Census Release Committe, has sent an
      e-mail containing the following information:

      Recent news from the Church of the Latter Day Saints indicates that new
      advances in scanning software and procedures will greatly add to the
      availability of digital images and indexes of millions of rolls of microfilm
      stored in their vast underground vaults. The project is estimated to be
      completed in less than thirty years, rather that the previous estimated time
      frame of 120 years. It is expected that in as little as 10 years, much of
      this vast store of genealogical collection will be available online.
