Thread: Bloomfield Documents Download

  1. Default Bloomfield Documents Download

    Library and Archives Canada have digitized 6 letter books from the Bloomfield collection. The link below will has the letter books.

    How to download:


    The first file on the page is letter book 25. The letter book 25 link, not the PDF icon, will take you to another page. On the next page you will see a warning that the files may not be ready, ignore it.


    You will see another link Online Mikan Number 4068837 (1item). That link will take you to another page where there is a PDF icon from which you can download the file. Files are large so the download will take a while.


    The archives are going to digitize all files in the Bloomfield collection that have files that are subject to solicitor-client privilege. Project will be complete sometime in 2020. If you return to their website at a later date you may find more of Bloomfield's files will be available for download.

    Thanks for this John. Much appreciated. I am sure the Canadian archivists have method in their madness but the very unintuitive way to navigate their filing system is quite frustrating isn't it? So your instructions are most welcome. Downloading now.

    My experience with them is that they do not always make things easy to do.

    Almost like they don't want the information to be easily accessible and shared....
