To All Genealogy Researchers

I am very glad that Genealogy Research has come as far as it has in the last few years, and to all those involved wanting to know their Lineage, that their Place in Life was because of those they Research, their Sacrifices, Commitment for a better Life and for their Families continues in the Hearts to wanting to know that Cycle of Life of their Ancestors.

May you find the answers you seek, even if they were not questions in the beginning, in your efforts, dedication, and long hours to learning of the unknown. 

My you find many rewards, sharing with those who follow in your footsteps unbeknownst to you, that they too will learn of and about you.

Granite Mountain Genealogy Records Vault (LDS)

In the News

Almost 50 years billions of pages of genealogical files have been stored in the LDS Church’s Granite Mountain Records Vault in Little Cottonwood Canyon.

The project is part of the church's genealogical work and is an attempt to further preserve and disseminate genealogical records, said Jay Verkler, president and CEO of FamilySearch, the genealogy arm of the LDS Church.

What would have taken more than 40 years if FamilySearch/LDS was to accomplish this task alone, a decade-long effort to convert microfilm rolls to digital files is underway at the huge underground storage facility (Granite Mountain), in a Joint Effort of FamilySearch, Ancestry, Find My Past and My Heritage will digitize, index and publish the records, making them available to the Public.

Eventually the vast majority of the collection will be available for online research
