Archives and YOU
The 21st century has brought new challenges and opportunities for our community and national archives. In this forum, we invite you to tell us about your experience using archives. What do you know about archives? How have you used them for research? How can they better position themselves for our digital age? Leave a comment, question, or anecdote!

RE:Archives and YOU
Online Archives make in depth research possible at one's desktop, or even in one's favorite cafe.

A list of such online archives would be quite useful.

RE:Archives and YOU
I have used both the on-line archives and the archives themselves. Digital access is fantastic, but you are at the mercy of how good of a quality document you can obtain from the source. I have just gone to try to access the 1861 Census on-line (ancestry & LAC collaboration) & for a lot of the records the pages with the names are missing. At the archives themselves that would not be a problem - but it is difficult to get a good clear print out from their printers. So there are pluses and minuses with both. If they do not put the other pages on-line as well you can miss out on some information that you may find important.
