One thought on “New Digitized Reels: War of 1812 Records

  1. I think it important that these records have been put online for those interested in the War of 1812, but I find the technology for moving from one image to another antiquated. On some websites (for example, internet Archive), one can use a flip technology, where the pages can flipped over, paused, enlarged, copied etc. I find the LAC technology anything but easy to use.
