I would like to point out, if it is of any help, that here in Utah the state
prison has a large program that uses inmates for transcribing and date
entry projects in family history. The program has been very successful, the
quality of the work good, and the self esteem of the prisoners is up and
their rate of repeat crimes is down.
But.....If I cant get my hands on a microfilm of the 1901 census here at the
LDS Family History Library I am going to be very unhappy.

Subject: 1901 Census - Plans For it and Your Views
The following is taken from soc.genealogy.britain mirrored to the
soc.brit genlist. For those unaware the 1901 census is to be transcribed
using prisoners in H.M. jails. Some genealogists are worried about the
quality of the transcriptions using this service plus whether it will be
available on CDs or fiche as well as on the internet.
I would like to know if any listers have any points they would like to
raise with the PRO as part of the Ayrshire Mailing List?
