The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced the re-opening of the Family History Center located in Lawton, Oklahoma. Genealogy has always been encouraged by the Church, and the Family History Library maintains the world’s largest collection of microfilmed genealogical records in the world and has made it all digital.

This interesting information was found in a local paper, The Lawton Constitution, in their article, “Mormon Family History Center to reopen in Lawton.” Besides digitizing, records are being indexed continually by volunteers all over the world and are added daily for online research.

This is a perfect example of the power of indexing against a strong taxonomy. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies to make their information findable.
