Only 13 percent of the world’s top genealogical records are digitized and preserved, leaving the rest at risk of destruction or loss. At current rates it will take 124 years to capture the top-tier records. Governments are asking FamilySearch for help in preserving their records at three times the rate FamilySearch and its crews can capture.
FamilySearch is strengthening its efforts to capture records. For just 10 cents you can save 10 records — that’s 100 records for every dollar you give. The ancestor you save may turn out to be your long lost cousin twice removed.
