To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Government Records Access and Management Act, I hereby request the following records:

Policies, procedures and/or documents pertaining to indexing for FamilySearch, otherwise known as Intellectual Reserve, Inc., a genealogical non-profit operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), by inmates within facilities run by the San Juan Sheriff. This includes any documents regarding Family History Centers operated within such facilities, and any documents referencing the LDS division named LDS Correctional Services, or the new LDS division named FamilySearch Correctional Facility Services.

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.

From: San Juan Sheriff

Good morning,

Unfortunately, San Juan County Jail does not control the program;
therefore, we are unable to provide any policies or procedures or other
documents pertaining to the indexing for FamilySearch, otherwise known as
Intellectual Reserce, Inc. We have allowed our inmates to assist in the
testing of the new portions of the program. We would be able to provide
indexing numbers from our facility.

Please feel free to contact our office if you have any further questions.

Have a great day!

Sgt. Marcia Shumway,
Thanks for the information. If I understand you correctly, there is indexing by inmates for FamilySearch at the San Juan County Jail, but it is only in the testing phase. Is that correct? If you could provide indexing numbers from the facility, that would be great.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,
Burkely Hermann
