The provincial government is preserving historical documents in digital format, Service Newfoundland and Labrador Minister Paul Davis, told the House of Assembly today.
The project, which began in 2004, has resulted in 7.7 million pages made available through the government Companies and Deeds Online system.
Service NL is currently working on digitizing records from 1825-1982.
