Choose a Custom Archive
To meet the needs of all families and societies, we offer two archive plans: Kindex Cloud (public archive) or Kindex Closet (private archive). Both Closet and Cloud Archives feature:

  • A custom subdomain of your choice (i.e.,
  • Unlimited records (pdf, png, jpg) up to 15 MB
  • Unlimited Collaborators (people you invite to access your archive, free)
  • Reliable hosting and backup by Amazon Web Services

Kindex Cloud archive is a publicly accessible archive, meaning anyone can to go your URL to view and search records. Similar to public trees on Ancestry, Cloud archives are ideal for families and societies who want to share record collections and crowdsource indexing projects. Kindex Closet archives are private, invite-only archives.It is only accessible and searchable to the archive owner and invited Collaborators. Closet owners may invite Collaborators to add or index records.

See the Kindex Features table below for details on the differences between our public and private archives.
