      With the increases in copy prices does anyone know where you can get money orders cheap?
      It's not the increase in copies that has me in a flap so much as it is that the minimum charge has gone up to US $4.00 as well.   I guess I won't be sending the cash in an envelope anymore.  ....I know I should have done that in the first place, but I  just hate having to pay the CDN  $5.00 service charge for a money order especially when it's for such a small amount.  Is there a better way?   ...Any ideas...? Thanks.

      If I understand this recent increase in fees correctly, does this not help
      us make a case for the Calgary Family History Centre to bring in the Ontario
      Civil Registrations for births, marriages and deaths?

      I would be more willing to pay for the films to come into the Calgary Centre
      and stay here,  than to send $32 U.S. to Salt Lake City to have 8
      certificates Xeroxed.

      I realize other alternatives exist.  I can drive to the Edmonton (220 miles)
      or  Lethbridge  (120 miles)Family History Centres several times a year.
      Edmonton has films of the actual certificates for most years.  It is only
      the most recent years that are sporadic.

      In addition, I would really like to see the indexes to the registrations up
      on the internet.  (I don't want much do I?).

      Thanks for confirming the "nasty rumor", Judi.
