Volumes of Clark Family Records

Posted September 20, 2023 by Archive Owner

A review of these Clark Family records indicate Ezra's noble family is a proud, educated, well-traveled, and hard-working stockā€”far from insular. For Kimball Clark, owner of Kindex, compiling and transcribing records for the Organization has been a pleasure. "Clark histories, particularly those from Ezra, Mary, and Susan, and their children and grandchildren, have been floating into our Kaysville office from descendants all over the world. We presently have compiled a list of 100 separate bound volumes that feature individuals from these three generations (just under 150 individuals). They give us an incredibly detailed insight into this unique family, farming and settling the west, polygamy, and missionary work for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints." Less than half of this list have been digitized, and about 30 legally-replicable Clark histories can be presently found in this archive. Any help adding more, or transcribing, would be appreciated!

Bridging the Archival Gap

Posted February 24, 2003 by Archive Owner

Overwhelmed with the task of preserving and sharing their grandmother's letters, diaries, photos, and other personal documents for future generations, cousins Kimball Clark and Cathy Gilmore realized they needed a solution beyond digitizing. They envisioned a tool that empowered individuals, families, and organizations to be custodians of their own histories. With that vision in mind, they built Kindex: A digital archival tool that bridges the divide between institutional archives and privately-held collections. Kindex helps groups collaborate, transcribe, and share their collections. These tools have democratized the archival process for many families and organizations who would otherwise be unable to do so by making private collections discoverable, accessible, and searchable. With the power archives have to bridge generations, cross cultural boundaries, and diversify the historical record, Kindex became determined to help families and groups with end-to-end archival solutions.
