Thanks for the replies.

Yes smudwhisk - on the other side of the world! So luckily, it seems, I have not been aware of the sorry state of libraries. How sad to have all that information there, and it gets harder and harder to access it. I have been lucky that a lot of my dealings have been with County Record Offices, and they (at least the ones I contact), still run a research AND a copy service.

I seem to recall you can you still ask for a quote for a copy of a document that hasn't already been digitised and downloadable, on the NAtional Archives discovery site KGArrad? Although I think the last time I did it it took an awfully long time to get a reply.

When I needed a lookup at TNA (Railway Records) it was cheaper and quicker to use an experienced researcher.

I plan to go to the Library of Birmingham in about 4-6 weeks time. If you still need someone to help then drop me a PM. The last time I went to the Archives at Birmingham you had to make a firm appointment well in advance and to let them know the items which you wished to view. In other words no requests on the day.
