During the interview, he said that they are always looking for indexers at FamilySearch. Right nw, they have 170,000 people, but they are always looking for more.
And on the emphasis of stories at this year's conference, Brimhall said that we, as genealogists, need to be "more than just dates": we need to be seen by the public as the tellers of stories about our families. This is the way to bring young people into the family search fields - tell the stories about their families.
So listen to the interviews, and see if you agree with me in saying that the people were interesting, and had lots of interesting things to say.
