Granite Mountain Records Vault: The Video

Fam­ily Search, the genealog­i­cal records arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has posted on their web­site an arti­cle about their plan to dig­i­tize the 3.5 bil­lion images on the 2.4 mil­lion micro­film reels in their col­lec­tion. The reel mas­ters are stored in the Gran­ite Moun­tain Records Vault in the moun­tains above Salt Lake City. The Gran­ite Moun­tain facil­ity has been shrouded in secrecy. Though copies of the films are read­ily avail­able for researchers at the Fam­ily His­tory Library and at the over 4,600 Fam­ily His­tory Cen­ters in more than 80 coun­tries around the world, few researchers have seen the Gran­ite Moun­tain Facility.

One of the high­lights of the keynote address Fam­il­y­Search Pres­i­dent Jay L. Verkler’s keynote address at the 2010 NGS Con­fer­ence in Salt Lake City was the pre­sen­ta­tion of a film that takes you inside Gran­ite Moun­tain. This film is now avail­able, in two parts.
