TNA gives some clues about its digitization plans in a news release today that summarizes questions and answers from a June public meeting:
- "[W]e plan to make other records ... such as RG 4 [nonconformist registers] and PROB 6 [PCC admons] ... available online within the next couple of years."
- "The new digitisation programme is expected to take five years to complete. We have recently issued our next batch of digitisation packages for potential partners [link to list of packages]. We will publicise the timetable more widely. The amount of notice given will largely depend on how long it takes for a commercial partner to be appointed for each package, and how long it then takes for the partner to carry out the digitisation."
- births, marriages, and deaths;
- Irish records;
- Chelsea pensioners;
- death duty registers;
- census maps; and
- officers papers, 1914-1939.
