More details of FHL digitizing projects released

Friday, October 07, 2005 has posted some of the presentation materials from the FGS 2005 conference. One presentation explains some of the projects that the LDS Church is performing.

1. The FamilySearch indexing project which will focus on indexing US, Canada, Pacific and South America vital records as well as British Parish Records.
2. The Scanstone microfilm scanning project which with new technology will have the entire collection of the FHL scanned within 6 years (estimated). The new technology provides for 370,000 films to be scanned each year rather than the 25,000 films which are scanned each year at the present time.
