Lift the Genealogical Embargo!

Lynn Turner reads headlines the same way I do. The first question to be asked is always, "How will this affect genealogy?"

Maybe, just maybe Castro's resignation will create opportunities for FamilySearch to begin digitally capturing Cuban genealogical records. I can see the day (hopefully sooner than later) when Catholic parish registers, immigration records, and many other important records become available.

What does everyone else think? I imagine nothing will happen for a while, but am I crazy to think that this is the beginning of Cuban genealogy becoming more widely available?
