FamilySearch is a nonprofit educational institution entirely funded by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, dedicated to promoting the preservation and sharing of genealogical information throughout the world. For the first time ever, FamilySearch recently offered to provide free services to archives and other records custodians who wish to digitize, index, publish, and preserve their collections. (See my earlier article about this topic at http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2007/05/familysearch_to.html.)
Today, FamilySearch issued an RFI (Request For Information) to commecial and non-profit organizations that might be interested in joining forces to place genealogy-related information online. The RFI lists many records of interest to the folks at FamilySearch and also solicits suggestions from interested Records Custodians and potential Service Providers.
