Academic Partner Projects

We have worked on projects for several academic partners. The students in our lab helped Martha Bailey (University of Michigan) with the LIFEM project, Adriana Lleras-Muney (UCLA) and Anna Aizer (Brown) with the Mother’s Pension project, Rick Hornbeck (Chicago) with a project to digitize and index the US manufacturing census, and Ran Abramitzky (Stanford) and Leah Boustan (UCLA) with a project related to Ellis Island oral histories. We will help with any projects that can directly benefit FamilySearch either by improving the Family Tree or expanding their indexed data collections. Our main motivation for these projects is to provide meaningful research experiences to BYU students. Contact Joe Price ( if you would like the Record Linking Lab to help with a project.
