Thursday, January 5, 2012 has Allen County Public Library's Microfilm

The Allen County Public Library in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, has added digital copies of National Archives microfilm to the website.This is really neat and gives users anywhere who are online access to these materials at no charge. This way those who have used the indexes to census without images for free at FamilySearch can get the census image at no charge.

The site has a main intro page which leads into the film. Users familiar with using the microfilm shouldn't have too much difficulty navigating the "rolls" of film. All the images on are free--so users can view all this "microfilm" at home at no charge. The images are organized geographically but are unindexed.

These images are some of the things we'll discuss in my webinar on using We'll see how to navigate through the images for those who have not used them. Those who are interested can join me in a real time trip to the Allen County Public Library in August.
