Granite Mountain Records Vault, Storage for FamilySearch

Have you ever wondered what the Granite Mountain Records Vault of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints looks like? Or how they process requests for microfilm copies that you order at the Family History Centers around the world? Or what FamilySearch is doing to preserve images of records from around the world? Here's an opportunity to take a video tour and learn more.

In her post, Genealogical Trick or Treat, TK of Before My Time, mentioned a post about the Granite Mountain Vault which houses the genealogical records of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  I sent her the link to this post (originally published on September 10, 2010) to let her know she could "tour" the vault.  She told me the links were broken but that the videos were still available on youtube.  She suggested I fix the links and republish.  So here you have an updated blog post with two interesting, brief youtube videos.  Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for posting, Nancy, I was fascinated!

  2. I've always wondered what it was like. It was very cool to see!

  3. Wow, Nancy, I'm amazed by the whole story, but especially the technology explained in Part 2. Very much worth watching! These videos are still on YouTube, but the links in this post are broken. Hope you'll reload and repost, as this is so very interesting!

    1. Thanks for letting me know about the broken links, TK. I've fixed them and republished for anyone who doesn't know about the videos.


I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks for stopping by.
