Reclaim the Records--An Interview

Have you ever had issues getting access to records that should be available by law?  Did you just give up?  Well, Brooke Schreier Ganz didn't give up--she began filing Freedom of Information requests and (when that didn't work) lawsuits.  And she's been winning.  Here's an interview I did with Brooke who founded Reclaim the Records to help get genealogists access to critical records.  She talks about her past successes, what she's working on now, and what's in the works.  Enjoy!
