Your donation to the BYU Record Linking Lab will have a triple impact. First, all of the money you will donate will be spent directly on undergraduate research assistants at BYU, providing them an excellent mentored research experience. Second, all of the work they do will directly result in additions and improvements to the Family Tree at FamilySearch. Third, in many cases, we can find a scholar willing to match your donation with their own research funding.
The matching aspect of our project creates a win-win that allows you to double the impact of your donation and allows scholars at other universities to tap into the talented pool of students at BYU for half the price. Our hope is that this arrangement will dramatically increase the amount of outside funding available for these projects. We are very grateful for any donations that you are able to provide to support the work we are doing.
