Tech startup Kindex excited to debut at Rootstech 2016 as a semifinalist in the RootsTech Innovator Showdown. There they will present their indexing software to over 23,000 attendees during the RootsTech Innovator Summit on Wednesday, February 3 2016. There the semifinalist field of twelve will be reduced to six finalists to compete for $100,00 in prizes.
Kindex invites participants to see their booth in the Innovator’s Alley as well as in the convention area, where they can learn how Kindex can help rescue their records from obscurity to be archived, searched, and shared.
Cousins Kimball Clark and Cathy Gilmore founded Kindex™ LLC in the Fall of 2015, after spending years trying to manually digitize and transcribe their vast collection of family letters, journals and other documents. “Indexing has been immensely popular in fueling the find for millions of researchers,” Cathy said. “Why not extend indexing to the millions of family records that are rich with people, places, and events. These records are at risk of being lost or discarded, and within them are the stories and answers to which we all seek.”
