I had the distinct honor of attending a FamilySearch VIP Breakfast held here in the banquet hall at the NGS Conference this morning. Besides having a great breakfast, and getting to visit with both old friends and new, I got the latest data on some of the FamilySearch projects. Following are just a few numbers I found interesting:
- FamilySearch currently has 3.2 billion searchable names on the website.
- 429 Million names were indexed in 2012.
- 222 digital cameras are currently operating worldwide, capturing images of genealogical documents.
- Digitization of the records stored in the granite vault above Salt Lake City is now at 37% of the 31 billion images.
