To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New York Freedom of Information Law, 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 New York Department of Corrections and Community Supervision. 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 New York Department of Corrections and Community Supervision 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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Burkely Hermann

Ms. Shultis,
Thanks for the update about my FOIL request. Although I am, admittedly, doubtful you will find anything, based on my results from other states, I appreciate your effort. Its better than the correctional departments of Arkansas, Louisiana, Delaware, Alaska, Indiana, Tennessee, Nevada, or North Carolina which have not given me any response whatsoever. I hope to hear positive news by January 30th.

Best regards,
Burkely Hermann
