FamilySearch Indexing (South Carolina Department of Corrections)

Burkely Hermann filed this request with the Department of Corrections of South Carolina.

It is a clone of this request.

Est. Completion None
No Responsive Documents


From: Burkely Hermann

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the South Carolina Public Records 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 South Carolina Department of Corrections. 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 South Carolina Department of Corrections 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 15 business days, as the statute requires.

Thank you for responding. I am not surprised that you do not have any responsive records to my records request. Even so, I thought I would check to see if you had any records, since specifics of FamilySearch's prison indexing program in the U.S. are murky at best. With that being said, thanks again for looking through your records.

Best regards,
Burkely Hermann
