Access to images
I understand the reasons why not all images are available for viewing. But there are different degrees of inaccessibility. Some records are held closely by their custodians who want you to acquire the images directly from them. That's understandable. Others are for viewing only on an FHL or affiliate computer. I currently have about 450 records in UK parish registers that I want to see. I am also an active indexer.
So the idea occurred to me that my computer where I do all the indexing (currently about 4000 records/mo) could perhaps be designated an "affiliate" computer for purposes of record viewing. A threshold of indexing activity would put a cookie on the computer (or something similar) and that "affiliate badge" would entitle one to see these images. The badges would have to expire after a time. Perhaps the indexing system could add a unit to the badge for every 1000 records indexed (or reviewed, of course) and the badge could be decremented a unit every week or month or something.
Or maybe this would be cheating the spirit of the agreement?
