Number of Names Extracted

Over the last five years, thousands of Church members have been involved in two name extraction programs—the stake record extraction program and the family record extraction program, which began in 1987. Interest in name extracting has grown over the years, as evidenced by the increase in names submitted to the Family History Department.
