During the past decade under Verkler's leadership, FamilySearch has shifted its vast stores of genealogical records and resources to a digital, worldwide, Internet-based focus. FamilySearch has developed partnerships with many genealogy and technology industry organizations, helping form a broad industry community including companies, societies and archives.
Dennis C. Brimhall will be the new chief executive officer of FamilySearch International, succeeding Jay L. Verkler on Jan. 2. Verkler is expected to continue in a consulting capacity for a smooth transition.
