Idaho State Archives to Digitize 27,000 Records

The Idaho State Archives is making more than 27,000 records available to the public by digitizing the documents in collaboration with http://Ancestry.com.

The Idaho Press Tribune at http://bit.ly/2rVZZ6h reports that birth, death, prison and other records are currently being scanned – a process expected to be completed in the next six months. The records will then be accessible through the Ancestry Institution online database.

To my knowledge I do not have anyone in Idaho, but I am happy they are doing this. I hope it motivates the rest of the States. Thanks for sharing.

    I do have a lot of family in Idaho, bad enough to try to find them without censuses, going back to first settlements in what is now Nez Perce County.

This is good in one way, but VERY BAD in that one will have to JOIN and pay for a membership (fees) to A.com in order to see the records and to pay another (extra) higher (fees) to get a physical copy of the record that they want….. I understand that the STATE is probably using the argument that THEY do NOT have the MONEY to do this on their own, or the experts to do it for them…..so the EASY way is to bring in A.com and allow them to do it, to hold the records, and of course A.com will re-coop their money (spent) by requiring a “membership” (fees) to A.com in order to see the records….. and to get a physical copy….THIS is just another move by A.com to gain control of ALL GENEALOGY records in the U.S. and world wide!!!!! SAD!!!!
