FamilySearch has the goal to preserve and publish the worlds vital records. In a presentation last year, Archives members were shown how FamilySearch's dCam-X tool can speed up and improve the process of capturing digital images. The next step is to publish the records online with useful metadata, making them accessible to the public as quickly as possible.FamilySearch is committed to digitally publishing the records it captures. The key to doing this on a large scale is identifying, gathering and processing metatdata about the content of the records being captured.
