5379RE: 1916 Census
- Aug 20, 2008Lois or others - is anyone working to get access here in Calgary? If you
have an idea how we can help...
I've had absolutely NO success in getting any Interlibrary loan materials
into Calgary the last 3 times I tried. It seems that all ILL requests
simply get permanently filed/destroyed without filling the requests.
Follow-up has not helped.
My bet is that Ancestry.ca/com has already acquired the films and is having
them indexed offshore and will have them on the pay-per-view basis long
before any of us gets a chance at them in a more affordable way. Call me a
cynic. (and annoyed)
