Finished up a project to update more than 998 broken links to the National Records of Scotland web site, including many to research guides for many topics related to Scottish research. The NRS was the result of a merger between the General Register Office for Scotland (GROS) and the National Archives of Scotland (NAS). To see what I worked on today, see the What's New pages: http://www.cyndislist.com/whatsnew/

What breaks a link? Something as simple as a directory change. For example, the Indiana State Archives changed their name to the Indiana Archives and Records Administration. The address changed from http://www.in.gov/icpr to http://www.in.gov/iara. That one directory name change broke all 178 links I had. An hour later and they are all fixed.

For anyone with research in Switzerland - tonight I added 177 new links:
Online Inventory . . . State Archives of Canton Bern - Kirchenbücher (Abteilung) / Church Books (Department)
http://www.query.sta.be.ch/detail.aspx?id=37
The church parish registers of 177 of 181 parishes of Canton Bern are now digitized and online as PDF files. They contain taufrodel (baptism registers), eherodel (marriage registers), totenrodel (death registers) as early as 1545 through the late 1800s.

Regarding the digitization of FHL microfilms:
“I can’t give an exact time frame, but microfilm circulation will go away in the near future, regardless.”
