Wow, has it been a year since Kindex won the People’s Choice Award at the RootsTech Innovator Showdown? What a fantastic year we’ve had helping families and organizations create searchable archives. With RootsTech 2018 just around the corner, here’s a sneak peek of what we’ll be up to.
Expo Hall: Preserve & Archive With Us
Along with exhibitors Shotbox and Flip-Pal, Kindex will be part of a larger exhibit focused on family record preservation and archiving. This will be a fun, collaborative effort where you can wander through our “home” and discover how to rescue your family records. Kindex will be in booths 1303, 1402, 1404 adjacent to the Heirloom Show & Tell.
New Kindex Archive Plans to be Announced at RootsTech
We can’t tell you all the details now, but trust us, this is going to be great. If you want more affordable (or even free!) options for your family archive, and need some motivation to keep adding and transcribing family records, you’ll want to stay tuned for this announcement.
Class: Hoarder to Order: A Step-by-Step Family Record Rescue
Kindex Co-Founder Cathy Gilmore will be presenting “Hoarder to Order: A step-by-step family record rescue”. Are you the family record-keeper? We’ll cover every step of a family record rescue, including record inventory, digital gathering, publicity, and digital archive options, and more. Don’t let your family records be scattered and lost—be the hero of your family archive and unite your records so they can be preserved and accessible to everyone.
