Home of the Salt Lake City Family History Library – The largest library of its kind in the world! Please take a few minutes to view the following video to give you an idea of the resources we access for you. This is where our team spends hours researching records for our valued clients.

Our location allows our clients to benefit from this enormous data bank brimming full of records including microfilm, microfiche, and publications and world maps. The collection includes over 2.4 million rolls of microfilmed genealogical records; 727,000 microfiche; 356,000 books, serials, and other formats including world MAPS dating back hundreds of years, and over 4,500 periodicals and 3,725 electronic resources. The Library’s United States holdings include records from thousands of county courthouses and state and regional archives, plus all of the U.S. Census records from 1790-1930.

In 1969 The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints founded what we know today as the International Genealogical Index (IGI). It is an index which documents births and marriages of deceased persons from around the world. To get records from places other than just church archives, the Extraction Program was developed. Extractions began with submissions from individuals, both church members and non-members, In addition, extractions were made from pre-1970 temple records. The Parish and Vital Records List, which is published by the Library, shows which records have been extracted and listed in the IGI for each geographical area and time period. It also shows which records are currently being extracted. These records are not limited to LDS Church members or their ancestors.

The IGI contains over 250 million names. Most of the names come from records dating from the early 16th century to the late 19th century. The index does not include every person from any given country, nor the names of all persons from the records indexed. However, the names listed in the IGI are not limited to individuals who are relatives of LDS members.

Records available are from the United States, Canada, the British Isles, Europe, Latin America, Asia, and Africa.

Approximately 200 cameras are currently digitizing records in over 45 countries. Records have been filmed in over 110 countries, territories, and possessions.
