      I just realized that I sent the note below directly to Ian without cc'ing
      the distgen. If you haven't peeked at the online tool - do so now. It's
      great!

      Wow - this is an amazing feat, Ian. The searching is "dead-simple", the
      'hit list" is clear and detailed, and the links to the contextual
      transcription and microfilm image are incredibly useful.

      Congratulations on the best design I've seen in a long time - and for among
      the most useful data. As you can see, I'm cc'ing the Mennonite History
      community that I work with - they'll also appreciate this.

      The work of the Alberta Genealogical Society, Edmonton Branch, indexing
      all of the NWT Districts which became the provinces of Alberta and
      Saskatchewan in 1905 has previously been published in five hard copy
      volumes.

      All of these (140,000 lines) are now available on the Edmonton Branch
      web site with linkages to the scanned original records.

      AFHS and others may wish to create a link to this data at:
