SALT LAKE CITY (September 6, 2013)—Family Search, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' nonprofit organization dedicated to the research of family history, has signed a $60 million agreement with Ancestry.com in a project to make 1 billion new genealogical records available to the public.
The plan is for the two entities to work together to dig into the deep genealogical vaults of the Mormon church to digitize and index as many as 1 billion new records that allow people around the world to research their family trees.
The two entities have worked together before, with millions of records already available to users on both ends.
