Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 28, 2014
Obituary.us.org is in the process of adding additional older records to its searchable database, the company announced yesterday.
“We've gotten to a point where many of our customers want to search for older records than we were initially prepared for,” an Obituary.us.org spokesman said. “At first, we were importing records that already existed in an electronic format. But we now realize there is a need to have access to older death records that may only exist on paper. So we are working with public records officials to find ways to digitize these records.”
Obituary.us.org provides people with online access to public death records. Most of their customers use them for genealogical research and building their family trees, he said.
“We need to go back further than simply the 1960s and 1970s to give our customers what they are looking for,” he said. “So we have to find a way to do that. The good news is that many governmental organizations are seeing the need to preserve their records in an electronic format – so we'll be working with them first. Then we'll find out what we can do with even older records, and records from less technically advanced jurisdictions.”
The effort is expected to be a technological challenge for the company's IT staff, he said.
“We are sure they are up to it, but it is going to take some time to fully integrate the older records,” he said. “But once that's done, we'll have an even more valuable service to offer to consumers.”
