Remove the copyright status that exists for historical parish registers

Comment 15th July 2010

Remove all historical parish registers from copyright status so that any organization such as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints which possesses digital images of these documents can place such images online without needing the permission of any archivist or diocesan authority or anyone else for that matter.

Why does this matter?

This would greatly increase access to such documents for family historians everywhere. It would also help the government save money by reducing the numbers of people who use the County Record Offices.
