=== History ===
+
The position of Stake Extraction Director (now called Stake Indexing Director) was implemented to facilitate the Universal Data Extraction (UDE) program.  The UDE program was started to extract information from historical records. Its purpose was to create a digital database for use in family history research. Church members were called to use computers to enter vital records from original documents, microfilm and paper copies of microfilm.  With the advent of the FamilySearch Indexing program, volunteers worked on computers to transcribe information from digital images of microfilm. The Universal Data Extraction program was eventually phased out for the general public and replaced by the indexing program.
