Granite Mountain Records Vault, Home of Familysearch Records

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. It IS amazing! Who would have guessed that they could build an "office" inside a granite mountain.

  2. It's great to know the records are in safe hands (or granite mountain vault). Thank you for re-sharing the videos.

    1. Hi, Family Sleuther. Yes, and we hope they remain safe -- no earthquakes or anything of the sort. You're welcome for the videos. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment.


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