FamilySearch Indexing (Nebraska Department of Correctional Services)

Burkely Hermann filed this request with the Department of Correctional Services of Nebraska.

It is a clone of this request.

Est. Completion None
No Responsive Documents


From: Burkely Hermann

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Nebraska Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Policies, procedures and/or documents pertaining to indexing for FamilySearch, otherwise known as Intellectual Reserve, Inc. or FamilySearch International, a genealogical non-profit operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) by inmates within facilities run by the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services. This includes any documents regarding Family History Centers operated within such facilities, and any documents referencing LDS Correctional Services, a division of LDS. Examples of such documents include contracts between the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services and FamilySearch, often called a "Memorandum of Understanding," with an attachment describing FamilySearch's assistance.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 4 business days, as the statute requires.

Ms. Kokensparger,
Thanks for the response. I am not surprised to see you do not have any responsive records to my request, but I thought I would check anyway. Thanks again for your help in this process as I continue to learn the extent of FamilySearch's prison indexing program across the U.S.

Best regards,
Burkely Hermann
