The Deseret News reports (http://bit.ly/19nILvP) Family Search signed a five-year, $60 million deal with the Provo-based private company. Family Search is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' non-profit organization dedicated to the research of family history.
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 up to 1 billion new records that allow people around the world to research their family trees.
The two sides have worked together before, with millions of records already available to users on both ends.
