Ah, the challenges of time zones....by the time I got up and running this
morning I was 20 emails behind on this thread, sigh.
Terry, this is part of the struggle with crafting this particular source and
the main reason I haven't settled on my own version. My gut says that I can
lump records I have seen in Ontario together with the records I have seen
on-line at Ancestry.com, solely because I am giving in the CD for each tag
linked with that source the town, page and specific record identification
number, so that anyone else can directly find the same record through either
the Archives version or the on-line version.
I agree, though, that the only wording option I seem to have is "viewed on
Ancestry.com", leaving to the reader to deal with the mystery of whether the
entire Ancestry.com inventory of images for these records is absolutely
identical to every frame of the microfilm in the Archives. However, I don't
think I am leading any reader astray to assume that every record I HAVE
VIEWED from the Ancestry.com collection of images is also available on the
Archives films. I hold the same assumption on census images viewed on-line.
