From time to time the CGS blog likes to inform our readers and friends about campaigns to improve access to genealogical records. A group of activists recently succeeded in forestalling a huge increase in the fees to access A-files and other immigration records. Now they are lobbying USCIS to transfer these records to the National Archives. Public comments are due by MAY 19.
Head to www.recordsnotrevenue.com for comment starters and to see a breakdown of the important issues open for discussion.
