Digital Preservation at FamilySearch

Few days go by that I don’t visit the free records on FamilySearch.  Having worked infs_presentation the digitization of records for a period of my life, I’m familiar with the processes and work required to create high quality digital files.

The process at FamilySearch follows my own experience.  It takes time, concentration and huge volumes of data storage and processing power to create quality files.

Jason Pierson recently created a presentation on Prezi that explains the steps used at FamilySearch and the reason the LDS Church invests so much time, effort and money in preserving the vital and other life related records from around the world through time – all at no cot to the public.

By leveraging a lifetime involvement in technology, my research efforts have resulted in terabytes of ancestral data, earning me the moniker of Lineagekeeper. And yes - We are all related to Royalty.
