We give far too much stuff away for free!!

So where is the money to come from for Preservation/Conservation and putting more stuff online to give away for free??

Whether records are given away for free is a completely separate issue from the urgent need to record and preserve the original records in the first place.  Before more are lost and/or deteriorate, which continues all the time.

I also have to say that I am astonished and somewhat saddened that anyone with a serious interest in family History research would oppose the permanent recording and preservation of the most important remaining records in Ireland.

there was a documentary on TV about them.

They have insufficient funds to even Catalog what is there, let alone preserve/conserve or put them online!

No funds to just keep the environment safe for their storage!

Simply...no funds!

Not sure where funding for PRONI project is supposed to come from but for over a years Northern Ireland hasn't had a government and many public sectors (health, education, etc.) are struggling.
