  2. Hello

    It would help a lot if you could tell us what letter you are up in the digitizing process. That way we could tell how far you are along in the process, beside the number of files you have done.

    Thank you


  3. Hi, Thank you for the update. I was just wondering though, when a file is digitized, it is available immediately? For example if Private Smith’s record was digitized today at 11:00, could I find it at 11:01?


  4. It would be nice to see a rough schedule of when you plan to post the files for each letter of the alohabet. Some researchers, including myself, have been waiting months to see files that span the alphabet, and we have no recourse until they are scanned and posted. At least when we could order them, or have a local researcher photograph them, we weren’t waiting without any idea of when the results might be available. Currently, there doesn’t seem to be much movement on the project at all. Will we be past the anniversary of Vimy Ridge or the Armistice before this is done? Scanning the CEF service records is a wondeful project goal, but your timing sucks to be doing it duting the centennial years.
