Just as a safety precaution I don't think that links to websites where personal details can be found should be included in these messages.

we all, I think, have our names in our signature block and there appears to be no restriction on visitors, however sick they may be, accessing these links and picking out personal details of any of us, although I don't think I and people like Wayne have anything to worry about.

Just a thought.

It is my understanding that, if there is a digitised copy on the system, it has been due to a request from (supposedly) a family member.

Only trouble with all the details is it gives date of birth and next of kin (albeit 30 years ago) but for those of us still here those are usually the details that are asked for by banks and companies if you have any phone dealings with them They are usually the security questions they ask - date of birth and maiden name or mother's name.
Yes, the digitised records are usually those that have been asked for my people doing family research, but there is no need to submit any proof of relationship to get the records digitised so anyone can do it, especially if you have a more common name and whoever isn't sure if you are the person they are looking for or not so they can ask for several to be digitised. There used to be a limit on how may per year you could request but I'm not sure if that still applies.

I do know that my records are there in part ..seemd to finnish in 1970 but non of my relatives have requested the info on me and neither have I ...so go figure.
I remember a few years ago that I was told from the Archives that they had a team that were slowly going through all records to get them on computer and not in alphabetical order

There are so many records to do that only so many can be done in a year, or whatever. I believe they are trying to get all the records digitised and one way is by people requesting them. you can request photocopies but I think it's now about $25 for that. There is the 30 year limit before they put them on. My records in my maiden name are there but not my married name (as yet). I think it's just pot-luck which ones get on and which don't. They are still trying to get the WWI and WWII records done as well. Anyone can request digitised copies, not just relatives or the person named.
