FamilySearch: FamilySearch’s Strategy to Help Preserve the World’s Archives

FamilySearch: FamilySearch’s Strategy to Help Preserve the World’s Archives. “David Ouimette manages the Global Content Strategy team at FamilySearch.org, the world’s largest genealogical organization and a premier records preservation company. Ouimette’s team is saving memories around the globe—historical documents that may be the only remaining witness to the existence of the individuals cloaked in their pages. It’s an ominous thought that untold numbers of records—and the stories they tell—are lost yearly. The FamilySearch Global Content Strategy team creates its record strategy by prioritizing locations and identifying the record collections with the greatest genealogical value. Determining which record collections should be preserved first—based on how long the records will be available—is vitally important.”
