NY archivists to lose a local resource?

New York genealogists and researchers are upset about a rumored plan by the National Archives and Records Administration to move the Northeast regional archive to a new office in New York City, and put most of its hard-copy materials in a storage unit in Philadelphia. Upstate New York Genealogy Blog has a letter from Roger Joslyn, Fellow of the American Society of Genealogists:
