History, Digitized (and Abridged)

A very interesting New York Times article on digitizing historical documents. In the article they mention the Church’s ongoing work to digitize genealogical images:

“Genealogy experts affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are fanning out, digital cameras in hand, making copies of genealogically relevant records in 200 cities around the world [...] Over the next five years, the church expects to have hundreds of millions of digital images available.”
