Access to some documents
Dear Sir or Madam,
First at all, I want to trank you for your amazing job digitalizing and uploading so many archives. My name is Ignasi López-Trueba, I work as a housekeeping manager in a hotel in Brighton, UK. In my spare time, I am a freelance researcher, doing my PhD as a hobby without any support from any public or private institution. My subject of research is about Death and Life in NW Catalonia, 17th and 18th centuries. My main source are wills.
I have been using your website for 4 years, mainly for the notary records of Sarroca de Bellera, Pont de Suert, Salàs de Pallars, Talarn, Tremp, Pobla de Segur and it has been extremely useful. As i said above, I research about Spain but I live in UK, so thanks to your website i could research in archives without traveling to Spain.
No research is never completed and I had some gaps (time and geography) that I would love to fill. I saw that you have the records to fill the gaps, but the access is restricted due copyright condicions. i tried for nearly 2 years to visit the familysearch library in Worthing, near Brighton, but due the covid restrictions has been impossible and I really need to finish my data compilation.
The files I need to consult from you are from Sant Salvador de Toló, Isona, Llimiana, Espot, Claverol, Escart, Montardit, Isabarre and Cervi. I wonder if it would be possible to have access from my home paying a monthly suscription (I am not a wealthy man, all my savings are invested in my PhD). I can provide you references about my research, my Phd tutor and the manager of Arxiu Comarcal del Pallars Jussà (Tremp, Spain), who collaborated with you. I understand the copyright and I will never download any document, I just need to collect the data for my data bases and my graphics.
I will be extremely happy to provide you any further information upon request.
