    Temple Square Family History Library, Salt Lake City

    May 04, 2018

    The world’s largest genealogical archive, the Temple Square Family History Library, draws tens of thousands of visitors annually. Over half a million books, maps, and other publications, along with 1.4 million rolls of microfilm, hold many secrets waiting to be discovered.

    The archive expands constantly. Visitors have free access to film, book, and photo-scanning equipment to preserve and share their own documents. The library’s 45 staff and 550 volunteers stand eager to help.

    Having said all that, this might be hard to believe: these facilities are free to use.
