    Update

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