  1. I believe that if we are to tell our children what we, our families, are capable of doing with our lives we should be able to research our families online in order to show how much our relatives have done in order to make our country the way it is today. If more people would act as selfless as those in the past we may have a better world today. If we cannot get the information online then it makes it harder to show our families where we have come from and what suffering and great sacrafices and accomplishments have been done for this country and our families.

  2. I urge every genealogist to take a minute and write to Governor Rendell. Only when he realizes how many of us are concerned and how the state of Pennsylvania will benefit by our use, will any changes be made!

  4. I believe Pennsylvania should allow research online and the ability get the documents needed to document our family history. A lot of us are unable to get to the areas we need to do the research in person or don’t have the funds available to pay someone to do our research for us. It would be a blessing to have this information online not only to benefit our research, but also for future generations to show where we are from and the journey’s our families have taken through the years. Thank you.

  5. I wish I had learned of this program sooner. My husband was born and raised in Penna. and he had a lot of relatives there. It surely would have been convenient if all those deaths had been online. I have a cousin who died in PA. I can’t get a death record for him as I am not closely enough related to him.
    Everyone considered close enough to obtain one has passed on and it has been 68 years since he passed. I believe Penna.’s qualifications for obtaining such death records are archaic.
