The National Archives

Free access to the Digital Collections promised by TNA!

They hope that this service can be made available as soon as possible.

This refers to collections that are available on their website that are usually chargeable.

Re: The National Archives

Does this mean, for example, that ORBs will be able to be downloaded for free without the watermark?

Re: The National Archives

I'm struggling to find any further news on this. Has anyone actually seen anything in writing from TNA? I can find no trace an announcement on their website.
Many thanks in advance
Jonny

Re: The National Archives

Hi Sorry to pop your bubble but the NA made a huge blunder organizing the didgital collection. I was there and found out after much work the index is totally wrong and will not bring up the material you hoped for. When I brought this problem to the NA's attention their reply was less than indifferent, they tried to kick me out for pointing out an error on their part. If you go on the web site you will be disappointed and overwhelmed. Sincerely Mark VIII

Re: The National Archives

Sorry to pop your bubble but the TNA's Digital collection was all indexed wrong! I mean way off. If you select the categorical numbers from the index you will not get the info you wanted. From an alphabetic view they are at least ten letters off. I was there and brought this to the attention of people in charge, and instead of getting a positive response they tried to kick me out for pointing out a fault! It is a large valuable archive, run by the worlds worst people.
