    Family History Societies themselves or from individual family historians so I dropped the attempt.
    Thank you for what you did get released, but why no support for the 1921? Or maybe you would prefer not to say/speculate.

    From feedback I got from a number of committee members for family history societies it seems the thought that their relationship with the GRO & National Archives and indeed local archives would be tarnished if they got involved with such campaigns.


    At the time there were still a number of old style archivists who resented change and others that feared (not without cause) that online records would lead to archives being downrated by local authorities.


    Some of those same people objected to a new super archive being built to replace the leaky Wakefield Registry of Deeds and other local archives in one state of the art archive that would have rivalled the National Archives, because they wanted their archive in their town. They could not understand the advantages that grouping them together would bring and the fact that the local libraries would have access to the digitised records such an archive would have been able to produce.


    In other words there were a number of reasons, some valid so no valid.


    The big problem is with every day that passes that records are not digitised they are in danger of being lost forever, no matter how carefully they are kept.
    Digitising allows records to be dispersed which in turn increases the chance that at least one copy will survive even the worst catastrophe


    Cheers

    Please don't drop the attempt to get it released early Guy!

    Is it too late for you to reconsider?

    Holly .... everything I have seen on other sites seem to indicate that there is little interest.

    BUT it is only 3 years to wait!
