Dave Obee on digitization of LAC materials

Leading Canadian genealogist, who in his day job wears the hat of editor of the Victoria Times-Colonist, has no problem getting family history-related issues into the paper.
On Wednesday, June 19, his editorial Don’t let politics interfere with data access appeared in the paper reviewing the situation and calling to "get past the politics, and get down to what really matters — access for all." Worthwhile reading at http://goo.gl/xISch.

A catalogue of about half of the proposed digitization project that is now delayed has been put on the Canadiana website at http://heritage.canadiana.ca/support/catalogue and it contains a good deal of genealogical material which is marked for easy reference for viewers along with original microfilm and fonds references.
