Solutions & services for genealogy

In the past, family historians and genealogists have been restricted in their access to historic content. They have often had to extract the information from old manuscripts, books, records, and micro-films through a cumbersome and manual genealogy record search. The process is time-consuming and involves detailed examination of family history from multiple sources and locations. Because the genealogy research market is significantly fragmented, multiple companies have launched different genealogy services and websites specific to regions to bolster their online presence and gain more consumers. As genealogy products & services providers move into various verticals to grow their consumer base, it is vital that they create and maintain an accurate digital database of searchable content. This helps to ensure evidence-based research that can be validated through online access to corroborating material. 

Genealogy companies have a mandate to adopt agile, emerging technologies and solutions wherever possible. This approach allows them to take maximum advantage of the opportunities presented by automated data analytics, machine learning, big data, and artificial intelligence. By embracing ITES our customers are able to more effectively transcribe, index, store, analyse and search large amounts of often unstructured data. Digital technologies can automate processes, minimise repetitive human tasks, reduce overheads, increase processing capacity, save time, eliminate data entry errors and duplication,  and ensure the highest levels of accuracy.  Outsourcing the end-to-end genealogy process to experts like SBL ensures immediate access to the latest technologies while avoiding the significant time, cost and ongoing expense of setting up and then managing the operation in-house.

By deploying technology, you can enhance the accuracy of your genealogy services and leverage solutions such as handwriting recognition software, DNA testing, artificial intelligence, organisational tools and many more.  We have the capability to optimise, and digitally store the data and raw documents for seamless future access. Having experience of 16+ years in transcribing and indexing historical documents and manuscripts, we have gained the efficiency to transform your data accurately within quick TAT. In addition, we have indexed more than 1 billion historical records through 1200+ projects in various European and Asian languages. 

Our highly experienced team can deliver outstanding services for multiple languages. These include Spanish, German, French, Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Latin, Welsh, and English. Utilising state-of-the-art infrastructure, we also ensure the security of the data under our ISO27001 security certification. Through a secure thin client network we assist our customers in transcribing, digitising and making their enormous volumes of data/images available on their online platform with the highest accuracy. This way, we reduce our clients’ transcription costs, resource & management obligations to deliver customised genealogy solutions while strictly adhering to SLAs.
