More on FamilySearch Indexing
21 September 2005 23:28
I found three presentations from the FGS conference today about the LDS church's plans to digitize all its microfilm, and then to index it all using volunteer extractors worldwide over the Web.
The church says it will likely be able to have all of its over 2 million microfilms digitized within 6 years.
One presentation of the three also talks about the church's plans for a new application which will provide a centralized repository of genealogical information, allowing collaborative research and concensus to arrive at better and more accurate information. Think of it as the Ancestral File updated to take full advantage of the Internet age.
Amazing stuff. I can't wait!
