    Rant!

    I can tell you something that's becoming more and more frustrating with the passing of each day, this being the increasing difficulties encountered when trying to access information on the internet that was once free and much easier to get at. Many of the old sources are disappearing from their original locations only to be housed now in pay sites or special access sites. Also, many of the "public" sources are dishing their resources off to third parties in an effort to cut cost, these other third parties gobbling those resources up and then charging access on order to post profits and to cover their cost, so "free public access" is starting to become more and more scarce all the time. Our library here, once providing "a lot" of in house resources and materials, is now but a shell of what it use to be, it's resources minimal at best, and generally speaking, pretty much useless. I can see the day coming when free public access to public records no longer exist at all.

    I noticed that years ago and you are right. The US Government sold off all of the census records to the genealogy sites. You have to pay fees to be a member. The good newspapers were sold off and you have to pay to access them most charge $1.95 a page copy. All historical books and documents should be placed on E-Books even Court House Records have been sold to genealogy groups. They have placed them in $39.95 or more expensive books. bigscoop you are so right. I see our country doomed especially after the next President takes office. We are barely existing on life support now. The good ole days are gone. Now we are to encounter what other nations have put up with for centuries. It is coming to America.

    I know you've run into the same thing, and it sucks! I was trying to access another document today that I've accessed several times in the past, not even there anymore, a nice little link redirecting me to yet another site that I couldn't even create an account for. I guess I'm not "special" enough, I suppose.

    It is all a conspiracy to keep the truth of the Beale Papers a secret...but the truth is out there wrapped in a mystery and a never ending enigma.
