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.
