Free the Records

From the CBC "Government accused of hoarding Canadian history in 'secret' archives"

If you're in a position of authority in a genealogical organization consider having them support the petition to transfer hordes of records in federal departments to Library and Archives Canada.

Also sign on your own behalf.

I will sign the petition and forward to colleagues in the heritage community. However, having just toured Willowbank in Niagara today, and trying to donate my own heritage magazines to local museums and libraries, I am aware of issue so many heritage institutions have. Space, to store materials, for one thing. Staff to index and catalogue donated materials.

It is a growing problem.
